Thread: Photography is not my only passion.

    Default Photography is not my only passion.

    Hi guys. I headed to the old National Stadium of Singapore today that is slated for demolition to have a look at this rare crane in Singapore Skyline. It is a Demag CC2800 from Tiong Woon Crane and is just 2 years old. Assembling it was a Demag AC1600(a 500t capacity mobile crane) that has seen its better days. After conversing with some of the crew members, i learned quickly that Tiong Woon had actually preferred Demag over Liebherr(another maker of such machines) for certain reasons which i will explain later.

    Here is a quick specifications about this crane and the configuration.

    Crane Type
    ================

    Demag CC2800

    *Max. 600T capacity at 10m radius (600t = 600 small sedan cars)

    *45t/m^2 of pressure on foot of tracks at maximum load

    *Approximately 60% Hydraulics and 40% Electrical systems. (Info from operator)

    ================


    Configuration used
    ================

    *SSL/LSL configuration

    *90m boom consisting of heavy boom and light boom.

    *Derrick boom(Superlift) setup with ballast(Superlift Counterweight)

    *600t hook

    ================


    Load
    ================

    100t section of Stadium's spotlight structure. They will be cut into 100t/piece sections and lifted down.

    ================


    Operator's comment
    ================

    *Prefered Demag over Liebherr due to operation "feel"

    *Easier to diagnose problem compared to Liebherr due to lesser electrical parts

    ================


    Okay now is time for pictures!
