20.04.2020 / ONE MORE DIGGER FOR THE SALZGITTER FLACHSTAHL GMBH
Another high performance ship unloader for coal (Digger) made by Kocks Ardelt Kranbau GmbH (KAK) is coming into shape. Exactly 471 days after signing of the contract between Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH (SZFG) and Kocks Ardelt Kranbau GmbH (KAK) the Big Lift was executed on the 1st of April 2020 as scheduled. During that event the mainly preassembled bridge girder was hoisted by two 750 tons mobile cranes in one lift to the prepared travel mechanism. Previously more than 70 trucks (app. one third of them as special heavy load transports) with the necessary crane parts arrived at the coal port of SZFG. Readiness for operation shall be achieved early summer 2020.
