Placing precast concrete elements in the danger zone

In 2019, a huge avalanche of debris covered the only road leading from Andorra to Spain. Fortunately, no one was injured. The local construction company faces the challenging task of building an avalanche barrier in the middle of the still unstable terrain. In a first step, precast concrete elements were placed. It goes without saying that employees should not move in this high-risk area. Releasing the elements from a distance is therefore almost a necessity. For this task, two radio-controlled LUDWIG HOOK 5T are used. One of them is protected with our new Ludwig Protector to absorb shocks after release.
