1,700 ton Floating Crane Arrives for San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Construction

Liftech provided design assistance and review services to American Bridge/Fluor Enterprises for procurement of the shear leg derrick that arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area on March 12, 2009. Fabricated at ZPMC in China, the derrick will be used to erect the major components of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge self-anchored suspension span. The crane equipment will be responsible for placing all self-anchored suspension bridge deck sections as well as the lower portions of the new span’s tower.
