Self Erecting Tower Crane on the Stainton Aqueduct Restoration

Mantis Cranes was in Stainton recently to install  a Self Erecting Tower Crane on the Stainton Aqueduct restoration project. 

The aqueduct was heavily damaged during storm Desmond and storm Eva in 2015. Works commenced on site in August and are likely to last around 9 months. Our Self Erecting Tower Crane is due to be on site for roughly 12 weeks.

    When restoring historic buildings, care must be taken to preserve these buildings for future generations. Cranes play a crucial role in this process and provide the necessary means of material handling, access, precision, and safety required to carry out restorations without causing additional damage.
