Installation of Olympic stadium roof sections, Argentina
ALE has completed the installation of six roof sections, weighing 50t each, for the Parque Roca Olympic swimming pool in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
ALE installed the six roof sections, as well as a springboard and steel structure.
ALE used a 600t capacity crawler crane with a luffing jib at a 48m radius and 30.5m mast to lift each section. By deploying this crane, which is slightly smaller than other crane options, ALE delivered a more efficient configuration and was ultimately a more cost-effective method for the client.
ALE completed the roof lifts in two months.
The roof was as part of the Parque Roca stadium that will host the Youth Olympic Games later that year.
