Crane services are an important part of a dismantling project. The phase of lifting elements that require crane services calls for the determination of the appropriate method of carrying out this undertaking, i.e. a comparative study, as well as a plan for the lifting phase. In those cases where cranes are not able to perform the task, whether due to physical limitations (e.g. limited space) or of economic nature (non-cost-effective method), hydraulic cranes are used. Planning crane services is associated with a large amount of conceptual work aimed at implementing the project in a safe, efficient and, most importantly, economically effective manner.
