Crawler crane impresses in
For the Russian company Mostotrest, which specializes in bridge and road
construction, this means a lot of work – also involving a Sennebogen 3300
A new junction on the Moscow Expressway is the west-east con-
nection of the city center via a new expressway route.
The crawler crane is used for the numerous lifting tasks around
the construction project. In the current construction phase, a mul-
ti-lane urban highway is being created that is elevated on stilts
and is to relieve the existing road network.
In the future, traffic is intended to roll into the megacity on
several road levels. The concept includes numerous grade-sep-
arated exits as well as the expansion of the Moscow Ring
The entire reinforced concrete structure will have a
road length of over 3,000 m, including all exits. In addi-
tion, there is a lot of supporting and foundation work
to get the Molodogvardeiskaya expressway into shape
for the future.
The machine is equipped with a 48 m long main
and fly boom with working heights of up to 74 m.
During the three-year construction period, the
crawler crane lifted hundreds of precast concrete
parts weighing tons.
