Shipping of a boom for the New York Harbour

On last 26th February, an exceptional convoy departed from the site of SMI Drulingen, transporting an 86-tonne single-piece boom for a jib crane destined for the port of …

New York! The part measured 18 m in length, 2.6 m in width and 5 m in height.

The jib crane is presently being used in the port of New York to dredge the sea bottom in the port areas and on the shoreline. The dredging operations are necessary for the maintenance of the port areas and the shore, especially to clear out the sediments (often polluted) that get collected. Such a jib crane is mainly used when dredging is to take place in an area that is difficult to access, or if the pumping system is too far away. The boom and the bucket are used to look for the sediments up to a depth of about fifteen metres!
