TERMINAL 2 SPACESHIP 2021

LIFTING AND LOGISTIC OPERATIONAL INVOLVEMENT

The lorry loader attended Leicestershire to test lift the spaceship prior to the install in T2. 

Working alongside structural engineers, the pads were designed to achieve a point load below 450 kn per metre square.

The spaceship was lifted with two cranes. Each had 9 metres of jib height and were at a radius of 6 metres.

Once the spaceship was lifted into its permanent position on the frame, the robot was then placed on top.

The display will be in place for 6 months and then it'll be time for us to remove it.
