Big Crane Arrives at Tappan Zee
One of the world's largest floating cranes arrived at the Tappan Zee Bridge construction site on Monday. LiRo is providing quality assurance/ quality control oversight services for the project. The crane can lift 1,900 tons, or 12 times the weight of the Statue of Liberty. The vast size of the crane will enable large sections of bridge to be lifted into place, saving time and reducing the cost which would have been required if smaller cranes were utilized. The crane travelled from San Francisco through the Panama Canal, and had been berthed in New Jersey since January 2014, prior to its transfer to the Tappan Zee.
