MRI unit, handled with TLC!

Westdijk were recently given the tricky task of delivering an MRI Unit and a Cannulation Unit to The Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.

With each unit coming in at 15m long x 4.35m wide x 3.32m high and 32 tonnes, with a total value of over £1 million, the planning of this job had to be meticulous.

Prior to delivering the 2 units, we had to arrange for a Hi-ab truck to position several steel road plates to bridge a concrete void at the site which housed the waste water pipes for the hospital.

A 200te Crane c/w with a 97-tonne counterweight was then brought in to offload both units on a purpose-built foundation.
