No challenge too big for ULTIMATED and AERTSSEN


No challenge too big for ULTIMATED and AERTSSEN

With more than a half-century of expertise to its name, contractor Aertssen performs hoisting, transport and infrastructure activities. The company lifts building projects to a higher level with professional know-how, a zeal for work and the range of truly impressive machinery at their service. On one of the cranes, a Hitachi EX1200, Ultimated installed a Topcon X53i system.

The ‘Grizzly 2.0’ is a 170-ton machine with a boom length of 25 metres. Together with engineering colleagues from Luyckx, Ultimated developed a ‘submersible kit’ that protects the sensors and cabling with stainless-steel housing and piping. This allows Aertssen to safely use the crane under water - in dredging activities for example - with a minimal risk of downtime.

Ultimated began assembly just 36 hours after the confirmation of the assignment and completed the installation in less than three days - a top example of professionalism, collaboration and flexibility.
