BKL CRANE PROJECTS: OUR EXPERIENCE – YOUR ADVANTAGE.
World-class companies from the Black Sea to Sweden rely on our crane solutions. After all, for 50 years, our experts have ensured that hundreds of self-erecting and top-slewing cranes, mobile cranes, MK and loader cranes complete our customers' lift projects on time and on budget. Here is an overview of projects that were carried out using our cranes:
ALLIANZ ARENA, MUNICH.Over 15 months, Alpine Deutschland GmbH deployed several BKL top-slewing cranes to erect the building shell of Munich's new football temple and its esplanade. As numerous trade firms were working on site at the same time and the cranes were in operation 24/7, this called for meticulous installation planning and continuous support, including emergency response.

BMW WELT, MUNICH.During the shell and steel construction phase, BKL supplied three Liebherr tower cranes over a period of 12 months for our customers Wiemer & Trachte and Maurer & Söhne. Owing to the extreme depth of the construction pit, 13 metres, and the restricted floor space, several cranes had to be erected on steel pedestals, which protruded over the edge of the pit lining. Therefore, the base of the cranes was suspended above the construction pit.

BOTANISCHER GARTEN, BERLIN.For the refurbishment of the Botanischer Garten's distinctive greenhouse in Berlin, BKL's North depot supplied a Potain MDT 178 for our customer, Seka AG, over a period of 18 months. The lack of space meant that the BKL team had to carry out the installation using a 300 tonne mobile crane, which was stood at a distance of 50 metres.

EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK, FRANKFURT.BKL's Central location contributed to the new building of the ECB with a total of eight cranes over several construction phases. The largest of the eight BKL cranes, a Liebherr 630 EC-H 40 Litronic and a 550 EC-H 40 Litronic, reached a maximum hook height of 202 and 217 metres respectively after climbing several times. This project was unusual in that the upper cranes of these large machines were disassembled at the customer's request during the building process and exchanged for two specially produced 540 HC-L 16/32 Litronic upper cranes.

TRESFJORD, NORWAY.PNC Norge AS, a subsidiary of PORR, relied on BKL services and two BKL hire cranes to build the over 1.2 km bridge. In addition to dismantling a Liebherr EC-H, BKL supplied the two cranes needed to build the link to the shore, relocating them several times over the course of the project.

TRANSRAPID, MUNICH.An unusual solution was required to lift an exhibition piece. As the position of the train offered very little space and the load-bearing capacity of the floor was low, the BKL team first lifted the train onto a siding with a 300 tonne crane, which had to be extended under load due to the low height of the ceiling. The approximately 26m train was subsequently loaded in a more convenient place in a tandem lift with two 100 tonne cranes.
