Los Ramones Pipeline Construction.

Project description

The Pipeline Los Ramones is built by a consortium of three companies. LCS Cable Cranes contributed to the construction of phase II in NorthEast Mexico. This Natural gas pipeline is through challenging terrain and crossing a mountain range with a very steep section at the peak of the mountain. LCS Cable Cranes provided a cable crane system with a payload of 8 tons to transport and lay pipes. For this project, LCS only had a very short mobilization time in order to organize the material, shipment and installation of the complete cable crane system.

Scope of work

Installation of a cable crane for the construction of a gas-pipeline.
