ON THE BEACH: BUCKETS, SPADES, SANDCASTLES – BUT A TOWER AND A CRANE? MARGO COLE EXPLAINS

Throughout last summer, the south coast city of Brighton and Hove gained a new – and somewhat unexpected – tourist attraction. A 600Te crawler crane parked on the beach for 12 weeks. Thousands of people turned out to watch the crane in action, much to the surprise of its owner Sarens, which usually carries out its lifting activities far from the public’s gaze.

“We are normally on construction sites, so we don’t usually work with the public,” says Sarens project manager Simon Crawley, who claims to have been at major football matches with smaller crowds than those watching on in Brighton. “This was not a normal environment for us.”

The crane, a 600t-capacity Terex CC 2800-1 lattice boom with luffing jib, was parked on the beach close to the city’s famous fire-damaged West Pier. It was positioned so that people could still access the beach in front of it, as well as walking past when it was not in use.
