10 years since working Abu Dhabi 🏗

In 2012 I headed back to UAE to work on the assembly of seven Liebherr STS cranes destined for Kuwait

This was a really cool project, working with my friends from UK, we were responsible for all the electrical installation, pre-commissioning and of the Liebherr STS. Post-testing the cranes would be moved by ALE Heavylift on SPMT machine to a nearby berth where they were loaded onto a barge in three batches. Their final destination was Kuwait for a new terminal expansion.

Unfortunately I didn’t get to carry onto Kuwait as this was performed by the Liebherr team who went ahead to commence commissioning as soon as the first batch arrived.

Here are a couple of memorable photos from the site, which was beautifully overlooking the sea and cityscape.
