14-12-2006, preparations for hoisting the Figee crane onboard in progress. Hoisting beams are attached to both sides of the crane house (insert). I wonder if it will be hoisted in one piece. Taking apart in an upper and lower section seems more likely.

Hi Ed,

You are right, the crane will be divided in to two sections, otherwise the crane's are top heavy!

The cilinder you can see on your insert behind the crane driver position already wheights 30 mt!
