Sarens in Goliath replacement

Sarens dismantled an existing Goliath gantry crane and replaced it with a larger unit in St. Nazaire, France.

The latest Goliath crane spans 130 m over a dry dock and a ground-level construction area.

Sarens dismantled the old gantry crane using two CC 6800s fitted with a 96 m and 114 m boom respectively, in addition to a strand jack tower system. The freestanding tower arrangement was built up to a total height of 103 m from the floor of the dry dock using the SMLT 5800 and SMLT 3500 systems.

A beam system on top of the towers supported four 650-tonne strand jacks on a skid system, and a ‘low’ level skid system 20 m above the dry dock floor helped to move the Goliath’s main girder out of the dock once lowered. Additionally, 152 axle lines of SPMTs were used to transfer the crane components to the laydown area.
