Per Aarsleff A/S had their new investment in December 2019. The new SENNEBOGEN 613 replaced the company’s 19 year old SENNEBGEN 613! With a 18.8 m boom and a lifting capacity of 16 tonnes, the crane moves scaffolding, iron, and road blocking materials within the site at the Port of Copenhagen. And from day one the new SENNEBOGEN crane has been a success:
”For this type of project the 613M is perfect! With a weight of 18-19 tonnes, rubber wheels and an easy rigging process, it is very easy to move the crane around the site, tells Peter Thygesen, machine operator at Aarsleff, and he continues: ”It only takes 2 minutes to make boom and outriggers ready. The crane has an outstanding mobility, and as a machine operator this is features we appreciate”
According to Kenneth Bjarne Nielsen, Foreman at Aarsleff on this project, the crane is not only easy to move around the site, but also extremely maneuverable: ”This project requires a lot of work along the quay side, so we do not have a lot of working space. It is an advantage that the SENNEBOGEN can work within the radius of the outriggers. The crane has a small turning radius, which enables maneuvering in a safe manner without risks of bumping into anything in the surroundings.”
With large machines maneuvering around with heavy elements, a construction site might be a risky place to work. At this port construction site, people are not only working on land – but also on rafts. This requires a lot of skills from the crane operator when carrying out lifts. ”Though the crane cab is raised above the ground, this is not always enough to see the people working on the rafts. The new SENNEBOGEN crane has a unique function, which elevates the crane cab. This function is important for the working safety, as it enables the crane operator to have a better overview and thereby avoid accidents“, Peter Thygesen tells.
Not only is Aarsleff happy with the new SENNEBOGEN and its functions, but also the handing over by UN Mobilkraner. According to Kenneth Bjarne Nielsen this was a good experience: ”When we received the crane we only used half a working day together with a technician from UN Mobilkraner where we went over every function of the crane”.
And according to Peter Thygesen, the thorough introduction has been a good investment. The thorough introduction has created a sense of security in commencing work with the crane – there has been no surprises when using the crane – it is just a win-win situation.
