    “There's a neck-stretching sight dominating the skyline in Argentia these days, as one of the world's largest land-based cranes gets to work at Husky Energy's West White Rose Project.

    The massive AL.SK350 crane comes with some massive specs.

    It can lift up to 5,000 tonnes. Its boom is 124 metres long — longer than two NHL-sized ice rinks placed end to end.

    It arrived in Newfoundland in 200 shipping containers, requiring 300-tonne cranes just to piece it together.“

    I worked around those in Fort Mac, pretty impressive.

    The pics don’t really do it justice. I always thought the crane along side was a big crane!!

    I remember working on and around the crane/vessel Svanen when working on the Confederation Bridge. It Was quite humbling as it was lowering 7500t bridge girders over my head.
