Mini Crane Scales the Dizzy Heights of Europe’s Tallest Building

Our compact and transportable UNIC mini spider cranes are taken to all sorts of lifting locations, but this UNIC URW-706 crane has surely gone to one of the most spectacular spots around as it sits at the very top of The Shard.

For the faint-hearted who don’t like heights, it’s probably best to look away now! The operators working on The Shard have been treated to some amazing birds-eye views of London, and in these new shots taken by GGR staff from a helicopter you can see what a truly incredible height we are working at.Find out about the work we are doing on the project and how we got our UNIC mini crane all the way up there in our blog.Take a look at this special video to see the sheer scale of this operation.No job too big for the mighty mini crane!

Here are some of the great photos of our bright red UNIC URW-706 mini spider crane standing out in the London skyline by sitting pretty on the rooftop of The Shard.
