At the end of 2019, Sarens was involved in lifting a 210-tonne roof for a new diesel storage tank at the PERN S.A. fuel depot in Koluszki, Poland, as part of the country’s initiative to increase its energy security.

To execute the lift, Sarens used a Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane in SWSL 1 165t + 50t + 320t / 42m + 36m configuration. The CC 3800-1 met all requirements for lifting operations, including lifting capacity and working radius. It was brought in from a previous project in Lithuania, with transport and unloading lasting about a week.

Working within a limited space at the construction site, the crew spent four days assembling the crane, carefully determining the slings for 15 attachment points. The CC 3800-1 then proceeded to lift the 210-tonne load, turn it, and store it at the place of assembly. The crane worked for 24 hours, and two operators, two fitters, and a site manager were involved in making this operation possible.
