Manitowoc MLC650 Crawlers Replace Quebec Bridge

as posted on - Two Manitowoc MLC650s crawler cranes are working on a project to replace the Champlain Bridge, which spans the Saint Lawrence River in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Signature on the Saint Lawrence Construction (SSLC) is the engineering consortium assigned to the task. Andre Mylocopos, approaches manager for SSLC, said the company chose the 716-ton MLC650 because of the Variable Position Counterweight’s (VPC) ability to enable high-capacity lifts with minimal adjustments. The crane only needs to be setup once, and its counterweight is adjusted automatically based on each lift.

Manitowoc integrates Rieker inclinometers on several cranes as part of their safety and operator feedback systems (luff and boom angle, platform level).
