Crane used in 3-year storm-water canal project in Singapore
A Sennebogen 683 HD duty cycle crawler crane is being used in Singapore in an intensive programme of piling as part of a canal extension project.
The second phase of a $99.8 million project, being carried out by Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering Contractor, involves a 3.2km extension of a section of a canal.
The project is part of a much larger sequence of works to enlarge improve the stormwater system in the city. Currently the trapezoidal wastewater canals and confluences are being enlarged, to allow up to 30 % more rainwater to flow off in a controlled manner.
The 683 HD is being used to introduce countless sheet piles for the canal extension. The attached PTC 30 HFV vibrator hammer drives the metre-long sheet piles into a depth of 15 metres into the ground.
Thanks to the telescopic crawler running gear, the 683 HD is not only extremely stable, it can also be moved quickly for this task. This crane can access to very narrow working area while working on top of a constructed metal platform over the canal. For the operator, the ergonomic Maxcab offers an ideal overview of the work area.
The 683 has a maximum load capacity of 80 tonnes and a 5-section telescopic boom with a maximum extension to 42 metres, as well as 10 and 16 metre jib extensions.
