Crane Accidents

Self-Erector Tips


Ingolstadt, Germany

A self-erecting tower crane overturned onto the building that it had been working on in Ingolstadt, Germany, on Friday.

We understand that the crane was in the process of being removed, retracted in preparation for removal from site when the incident occurred. It looks as though the outriggers facing the building were retracted but looking at the photograph we have been sent, it looks as though some of the counterweight had been removed while the jib was still out.

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident and the damages seems light.
