#Howwedoit Constructing an Olympic swimming pool | Sarens


Right here you’ll find how Sarens approached and executed the construction of an Olympic Swimming pool in Algiers, the capital of Algeria. Urban construction projects typically have different challenges to those on remote industrial sites, which tend to be less confined and therefore less limiting for the lifting team in terms of techniques that can be used and the size of equipment. For this project, we chose to deploy a Demag 2800.1 as the main crane with an 84m main boom and equipped with superlift. The crane’s 600T lifting capacity meant that we were able to use a lifting radius of up to 70m to mitigate the constrained space around the site.
