Water press crane 97

On Saturday 20 April, the 97 water press crane was moved from its current location at the Siberia Bridge to quay 83 (Antwerp). There the company Hego will carry out the last restoration works on the gantry and then reassemble the boom and the rest of the crane. The crane should be ready by mid-2020. Eventually the crane will be placed next to crane 111 at the Noorderterras. 

On Tuesday 30 April, the large 'Titan crane' will move from quay 140 to Rijn quay. There she completes the list of historic electric cranes of the MAS. Both cranes are protected as a monument and are part of the unique collection of harbour cranes of the MAS. The MAS can count on the floating hoisting jib Brabo for these impressive moves.
