Project Wobeck Crane Services Playing for The Bluebirds


The Problem

Barrow in Furness football club were in the process of replacing the lighting stacks on their flood lights for night games. These are large stacks that need to be mechanically lifted into position but their location meant that a crane would have to drive over the pitch. A large wheel mounted crane would damage the pitch and just wasn’t suitable.

The Solution

The potential for using the Wobeck spider crane was discussed and its small footprint appealed to the clubs management. The order was placed and the work progressed with no impact on the playing surface. We hope The Bluebirds have a successful season and enjoy night games under their new lights.

Our boat needed lifting into position but the access was poor and across protected flag stones where using a normal crane simply was not possible. We contacted Wobeck Cranes and the service was excellent from the outset, they discussed our problem, visited site and used their specialist crane service to lift our boat in to position and remove it at completion’. A job completed well and effectively
