13 Apr BBC Blue Peter gets Altida to Abseil Presenters across Salford
Our Appointed Persons are experts in crane placement and rigging, and can advise and instruct accordingly as to how any crane lift should be carried out, safely, professionally, and properly. This is why Altida were chosen to supply one of our mobile cranes for the BBC’s Blue Peter Zipwire Challenge episode.
This zipline was 250 meters long, and the Blue Peter presenters had to travel at 25 MPH. Our crane calculations determined the Terex AC60/3L crane would provide ample height, with the telescopic boom reaching 44 meters when fully extended, and a 15 meter swing away fly jib, allowing the man basket to travel up to 59.35 meters.
It was an impressive job to watch, and we got a Blue Peter badge! Life goal achieved 🙂
