UNIC mini crane creates glass memorial in Prague

A mini spider crane hired from official UNIC dealers in the Czech Republic, KMB Stavební servis s.r.o, was used to install a new glass sculpture in Prague recently.

The memorial commemorates Emil Kolben, an engineer and entrepreneur from Prague who co-founded one of the Czech Republic’s most important electrical engineering companies.Kolben and four of his colleagues from Thomas Edison’s workshops in the USA who died during World War II are depicted by these lifesize cut outs.

A UNIC URW-295 mini crane was used to lift each figure into place as well as a panel of white frosted glass to act as a backdrop. Each cut out was made from 19mm thick tempered glass and included holes to represent areas of where the men were originally injured.

The 2.9 tonne capacity lifted the glass loads using slings and a 320kg capacity P11104 Four In Line glass vacuum lifter. Thanks to the crane’s manoeuvrable outriggers it was able work safely on the uneven ground and around mounds of rubble on this unfinished site.
