Enerpac’s HSL 5000 used to replace the Gerald Desmond bridge in California

The American company Enerpac is specialized in high-pressure hydraulics. It recently provided its HSL 5000, strand jacks materials, to enable the company Bigge Crane and Rigging Co to lift two 613t pier tables to a height of 62,5m to replace the Gerald Desmond Bridge in Long Beach, California. Each pier table required 10 hours to be lifted, and around the base of the two towers, four HSL 5000 each with 48 steel brands has been settled to complete this operations. Bigge synchronized them also thanks to the Enerpac’s SCC control system, “allowing the entire lift to be managed by a single operator” as stated the manufacturer.
