We have received news of a 650 tonne crawler crane overturn in Vlissingen, in south west tip of the Netherlands.
The crane, which looks like one of Mammoet’s Demag CC-3800s, was working on a dock side when it seems the operator was in the process of lowering the boom of jib, when the crane lost stability and tipped forward, we understand that no one was hurt or injured in the incident.
