Tamazunchale gas pipeline project.
For the construction of a gas-pipeline a cable-crane system by LCS was installed in the mexican region Hidalgo.
The terrain, where the cableway was used to transport machinery, padding material and pipes was very steep (over 70°) and very rocky. The climatic conditions during the construction and installation were challenging. The cable crane transportet the heavy loads along over 750 m, including a horizontal bend at half-way.
