‘Maximus’ rail crane in operation in Sweden

This time we are on the road with our KRC1200 rail crane, also affectionately known as ‘Maximus’, on behalf of Vossloh Nordic Switch Systems AB in Björketorp. Björketorp is located in the municipality of Mark just south of Gothenburg. Sweden has meanwhile become our second home due to the many operations that our fleet of rail cranes and experienced HERING crane drivers are carrying out there.

This particular operation required the replacement of a bridge built in 1933 that had started to show some serious signs of ageing.

The only access road to the site was a 10-kilometre-long single-track line and demanded utmost skill and care from HERING’s crane driver. The section was already cleared in advance for the transportation of the seven-metre-wide bridge: Poles were removed and overhead lines dismantled.

Before the all-clear  was finally given! Another successful bridge installation for Maximus and HERING’s team.
