Freeport Hyundai Crane Damage Assessment and Repair

A tornado damaged six Hyundai monogirder cranes and toppled another. Liftech assessed the damage to the untoppled cranes and assisted with engineering for the repairs.

Hyundai Crane 9 suffered severe damage when it collided with Crane 10. The boom detached from the right lower hinge pin, the upper hinge broke off, the forestay apex connection plate bent, and the boom rotated more than 45 degrees.

The boom was brought back into its lower hinge seating, the upper hinge connections were replaced, and the forestay connection plates were heat straightened.

Liftech also assisted with engineering for modifications to the gantry and gantry connections, geometry survey procedures, and reinforcing for recent wind code requirements.
