Sarens Erects 91-Metre Flagpole in Atyrau, Kazakhstan
Working in busy city conditions, Sarens successfully installs nine flagpole sections
September 2019

Sarens recently erected a 91-metre tall flagpole in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, on behalf of client Kastador LLP. The installation began on June 6th, 2019 and was complete by June 16th, 2019.

To raise the flagpole, Sarens deployed the LR 1350-1 crane, which was assembled in the city centre to a configuration of LN 60m + 42m, with a lift radius of 22 metres. The working area was elevated three metres above ground, and the client had built a ramp with a six-degree incline so that the crane could crawl along it to reach the installation area.

Two crane operators and three riggers worked together to successfully install the flagpole. Over the course of five days, Sarens lifted nine separate pieces, each measuring 10 metres long.

The project was completed successfully despite challenges transporting the crane to the job site, and then assembling it. The crane was moved to the site from the Sarens yard, and transport took seven days due to traffic and truck prohibitions inside the city. Assembling and dismantling the crane also required two days.

Sarens would like to congratulate everyone who was involved in making this project a success.
