Wow, what is the project?

I hope you can go back there again and show us more of that big lift. Think

Thanks for sharing!

Great photos, I saw some photos on Facebook as it was being erected but nothing like this. It's almost difficult to comprehend how huge it is and the photo showing the reeving is mind-boggling.

Do you know what weight the lift(s) were?.

Scania V8. The best sounding truck in the world.

It is removing the final beams on the demolition of the former Earls Court complex. Some of the beams remaining weigh in excess of 1500 tonnes.

Wow, that is an impressive heavy lifter! Thanks so much for sharing. I wonder how those 1500 ton beams went in in the first place...

Here's a PDF outlining the stats (with some really nice pics) on their two heavy cranes: ALE SK Crane Brochure [UPDATED-Fixed the broken link, it had http// x2] Thanks so much for catching that.

Take care and all the best.
