Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station, UK
The SGC-250 will help the Hinkley Point C team deliver increased efficiency by lifting and shifting the station's heaviest pre-fabricated components.
March 2020

After the successful launch of the biggest crane of Sarens, the SGC-250, in November 2018, it was transported to the Hinkley Point C project where it will play a key role in supporting the construction of the nuclear power station currently the UK's largest and most complex civil engineering project. The project will be supplying 7% of the country's low carbon electricity and also creating around 25.000 employment opportunities throughout the construction phase. The SGC-250 will help the Hinkley Point C team deliver increased efficiency by lifting and shifting the station's heaviest pre-fabricated components. The crane is planned to lift more than 600 pieces of pre-fabrications, including the five major parts of each unit's steel containment liner and dome.

The SGC-250 reached the Bristol Port, UK ahead of its delivery to the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant in May 2019. For transport, the unit was divided into modules and shipped to Avonmouth Dock and stored there temporarily before its final transport to the construction site in Somerset around mid-April.

Sarens SGC-250, the largest crane in the world in both size and capacity, has a maximum load moment of 250.000TM, allowing it to lift an astonishing 5.000T. Even at a larger radius of 100 meters, it can lift an amazing 2.000T. SGC-250, designed in-house by Sarens, has the most unique ability in the global crane industry to relocate the fully-rigged crane on site from one lifting position to another.

Despite heavy wind, the SGC-250 was safely rigged in 10 weeks. Our crew mobilised 2x CC2800’s, a 220T, a 130T, and a 100T mobile crane to assist the rigging of the SGC-250 from the UK yard. The crane was successfully boomed-up as per the contractually agreed configuration on August 14th while the specially designed 700T capacity SARSPIN will be assembled in the coming week. The SGC-250 will perform its first lift around mid-September and one of the significant lifts around the spring of 2020.
