A 120-ton semi-goliath crane erected by a larger crane will be used to break through concrete walls and retrieve nuclear waste to be loaded onto transporters at a U.K. pile fuel cladding silo, or PFCS, at Sellafield. "We’ve had to bring in a [386-ton] capacity mobile crane to build our crane at Sellafield. The semi-goliath arrived in 12 separate lorry loads and was erected over two weeks in an extremely tight space," said Neil Crewdson, head of PFCS projects.
