Here the 360 tons heavy absorbtion tower with a length of 63 m and a diam. of approx. 6 m is negotating a tight turn in the village of Urmond and thereafter transported to the DSM jobsite. It attracted a large crowd. We used 2 sets of double wide Kamag 6 axleline SPMT’s (nett payload 360 ton per set) equipped with turntables.
The lifting onto foundation with 2xDemag TC-3000 + CC-2000 as tailcrane
The load in both main cranes was carefully monitored with an inclino-meter, which avoided overloading of anyone crane. It also made control of the lift fairly easy.
These methods and technics make it possible to safely lift large refinery columns with two smaller cranes and one tailcrane in case one large enough crane is not available. These methods are discussed in detail in my Mini-Seminar Heavy Lift Transport & Lifting.
