Transport enthusiasts should be intrigued by the items included in this video by Dutch trucking specialists, Videoprofessionals. One of the problems with large cranes is the difficulty of transporting them from site to site. Complete containerization is now seen as a solution, and in this video we see the world's first containerized crane - with a lift capacity of 2000 tonnes - transported from Rotterdam to New Brunswick, Canada. At a petrochemical site it is reassembled and begins its lifting duties. A second feature shows an industrial vessel transported on SPMTs through night-time Bratislava, Slovakia. It is then lifted by a hydraulically operated 3000-tonne-lift crane whose counterweight is made of transport containers that are filled with locally available materials. High in the Austrian Alps, a dredger, barge and associated equipment are transported by road to a dam reservoir 2200 metres up at the foot of the Gross Glockner mountain. This is demanding terrain for the truck combinations and their drivers. Finally, a brick-built factory recreation room is moved in one piece for preservation in Grogingen, Holland. New steel H-beams are placed under the building which is then hoisted on to SPMTs for transport.
