Lifting Projects UK 2nd Week (TBM-Sophia) Removal


Lifting Projects UK team set to undertake the removal of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM-SOPHIA) at North Woolwich Cross Rail Site for Hochtief Murphy Joint Venture.

Lifting Projects UK are carrying out a full contract lift on the site in North Woolwich using our full contract lift team to carry out the Tunnel Boring Machine de-installation using Sarens Liebherr LTM 11000DS mobile crane rigged on 56.4m main boom c/w 31.5m Derreck mast and 100t counterweight tray, rigged on 11.3m riggers and capable of lifting 102 tonnes @ 28m radius.


The Lifting Projects UK team for this particular project is made up of;
Chris Turner (Appointed person)
Gareth Turner (Lift Supervisor)
Andy Turner (Slinger/signaller)
Sean Jones (Slinger/signaller)


The de-installation of Sophia itself is a complex and challenging task but nothing the expertise and experience of the Lifting Projects UK team can’t handle.

This contract lift is going to plan and the team are set to complete the job on schedule which will be in 4 weeks time.
