Night work: LTM 1300-6.2 in service at the Eiffel Tower
French crane contractor S.E Levage completes a crane job at the Parisian landmark with distinction. A boat is hoisted about 60 metres onto the gallery of the Eiffel Tower.

Challenges and solutions in action
A crane site between the piers of the 300-metre monument is planned for the hoist. Wind turbulence does not allow the boat to be hoisted through the inside of the Eiffel Tower. That meant the crane has to be moved to the road bordering the Champ de Mars, the Avenue Gustave Eiffel.
Accomplished team work
The hook is moved upwards well after midnight. Company boss Eric Salvi and his men have their hands full securing the boat and holding it stable as the wind gusts around it. The team from S.E Levage completes the job effortlessly, positioning the advertisement safe and sound on the gallery of the "Tour Eiffel".
