Altius Handles Construction and Loading of a Port Crane in Bilbao Port

Our Bilbao team has been handling a highly complex project since 2016. The docks at the port of Bilbao have witnessed, for the past 16 months, construction of a 106-meter long, 68-meter high, and 27-meter wide port crane on rails (STS) which weighs 1,280 tons. A great deal of engineering and precision was needed to carry out this project.

This current month of January, once construction was finished, the crane was loaded on board the Big Lift vessel "Happy Star"; a delicate operation that required precise calculations down to the last millimeter. Our colleagues in Bilbao stayed by the dockside throughout the 12 hour long loading operation, to make sure there was good coordination followed by secure lashing on board.
