Las Vegas Nevada 2014.
In early April 2014, Stafford Tower Crane of America has been awarded the contract to remove this Comansa 21 LC 550 from the unfinished hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This crane stood at over two hundred and sixty meters high with seven ties. We removed thirty-eight D33 tower sections in 14 days and finally removed the crane from a free standing height of 50 meters in one day. This crane was then loaded in containers and sent to New Zealand, where it was quickly erected, and put back to work.
The work was undertaken and done by five men in total and lasted for approximately fifteen days to climb out and remove the crane from site. The crew consisted of three Irish men sent from Burj Tower Cranes FZ LLC Dubai and three men from Stafford Tower Crane of America, local depot in Arizona . Not all men where onsite at the same time. A steady crew of four to five people were onsite everyday.
This job lay unfinished since the down turn of the US Economy in 2008-2009 and is still unfinished. The crane was bought and sold by a trading company
