Rising to the challenge

Anyone that has followed DemolitionNews for any length of time will know that we have been calling for a new approach to demolishing and dismantling offshore oil and gas rigs.

It has long been our contention that, while traditional excavators and high reach machines are fine for traditional buildings, the very specific demands of these industrial giants demands a rethink.

Well, it appears that rethink has taken place. Excavator giant and industry innovator Liebherr has just released a new video showing the solution it created for Norwegian company Bertelsen & Garpestad.

The company is using a Liebherr LH 110 C High Rise Industry material handling machine to dismantle a wide variety of steel beams and pipes from the Gyda platform safely, efficiently and sustainably.
