A new gantry system B-SETWV manufactured by ENERPAC by order of SPETSTYAZHAVTOTRANS Group was successfully tested in the city of Hengelo (the Netherlands).
The gantry system is designed to lift and place onto foundation cargoes weighing 1,400 tons to the height of 100 meters. The testing involved the maximum weight of 1,830 tons.
