Sarens SPMTs and CC-3800 Crane Deliver on Successful Short-Term Rental Project in Australia
Equipment from Sarens Australia pivotal to transport and lifting operation over live railway lines
February 2024

Sarens is proud to help our clients worldwide get big things done, and when it comes to short-term rentals, we are the reference in our industry. 

Recently, a client contacted our Australian team to secure equipment for an operation that involved transporting 193-tonne precast beams from storage via SPMTs, and then lifting them into place.

In response, Sarens provided a 30,5-metre lifting beam and ropes of suitable capacity and length. We then prepared SPMTs and a CC-3800 crane with 66-metre boom and 325-tonne super lift, which was ideal for lifting the load at the required radius. All equipment was transported from the Sarens Australia depot in Maddington to the project site in Albany via Sarens trucks. 

Two crew members were involved in offloading and transporting the precast beams, lifting them carefully over an active railway line. Each beam measured 33,6 x 3,85 x 1,8 metres, and weighed 193 tonnes. The SPMTs transported them from the girder beam laydown area to under hook position.

Then, working at a maximum radius of 30 metres, the CC-3800 lifted the twelve beams into place. This had to be an extremely careful and  precise operation because the first six beams had to cross a live rail line. The crane would slew into place and then track to the next location, lifting for six consecutive days. 

Sarens would like to thank the crane operators, riggers, and everyone else involved in making this project a success!
