Crane overturn in Ghent

A crane operator was seriously injured after a large lattice crane overturned in the port of Ghent in Belgium earlier this week.

The crane - a Demag PC 3800-1 pedestal crane from Sarens - was apparently being erected with main boom and back mast, in order to install a wind turbine at a recycling centre at the port . The crane’s engine caught fire after it had overturned.

At the moment this is all the detail we have at the moment but will update this item if and when we learn more.
