Tower over in Poland

7. October 2017 | Comments (1)

A luffing jib tower crane came crashing down in Opole, Poland - between Wroclaw and Katowice - on Thursday night after strong winds from windstorm Xavier - Orcan Ksawery given its local name - hit the area with wind speeds topping 80 miles an hour.

Poland
The crane failed at the foundation level

It is clear from the photographs that we have receieved, that the crane failed at the foundation base - or close to the base - at the same time the jib blew over the rear and further damage was done when the falling crane collided with surrounding structures. We understand that no one was hurt in the incident.

Our local source claims that the crane is a Linden Comansa belonging to the local distributor Corleonis.

It looks like the luffing jib went over the back, as it is bent 180 back on itself, before the foundation or bottom of the tower failed.
