Wangfoong Transportation Limited, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for Hong Kong, reported about several recentdemanding heavy cargo lift and transport operations.
Due to site and time constraints, Wangfoong collected the generator set by derrick barge at midnight with close supervision by the Marine Department. The swinging situation increased the difficulties on the lifting. Two tug boats were used to stabilize the lifting operation from upper floors to the barge.

Wangfoong arranged another night and convoy operation for land transportation of this over-weight and over-sized grinder machine. Two units of heavy lift lorry cranes were used to perform a tandem lifting. A pair of tailormade spreader beams were required to cater for the low headroom during lifting, in order to minimize the lifting height and avoid lifting gears touching the grinder machine body.
