Customer: Songer Steel Services
Location: Detroit, MI
Critical Lift: 220,000 lbs
The project involved hoisting a 110-ton gas “scrubber,” which was 109 ft long and 19.5 ft in diameter, from a barge docked on the Detroit River to the dock on Zug Island. Once landed on Zug Island, it would be transported to its final destination at the steel mill. The GMK 6400 needed to handle approximately 60 tons at 60 ft radius, and the GMK 6300L had to hoist approximately 50 tons at a 55 ft radius.
