It's all connected, it's one big underground complex all the way from the 2/3 station to the WFC.

The jib maybe has to come down in the air. And to lift that thing out you (this is if they do the same technique as they put it in) need another crane where the smaller crane was that always used to remove dirt from the hub (Manitowoc 14000) and make whatever crane they put there, another one down in the hole to lift the 18000 out. If you look on the KPI TV cam, it is perfect to see how they might do it.




I seen this last night, 42 tons!

Nice pix, that looks like one of the ends for the East Truss.

As far as dismantling the 18000, can the Favco handle it?

Also, the train that goes through the WTC hub is the 1, while the 2 and 3 have stations at Fulton st.

Thanks..The Favco can lift the counter weights and probably most of the boom sections at a close radius to itself, but the rest, no.

The first part to come off is the max-er, the favco will take the max-er weights off then the 18000 will lift it out, the same way it came in.

The biggest problem is to lay the crane down, im sure they planned for it but it looks like someone screwed up big time. When it was first assembled in the hub it was crawled back against the #1 box with no max-er and it reached the slurry wall at church street, keep in mind they also had an extra 20 feet then. Like 325 said, the luffer will probably come off in mid air which has been done before but never in NY, it will be interesting to see to say the least! As for the heaviest pieces of the crane, the tracks, body and roatating bed, i am guessing they will use the new greenwich street and set up a crane on it to remove them as no crane on site such as the favco can lift these pieces at the radius they are set at. It will be very interesting to see this

Ooh, Thanks for everyone that cleared up what trains will be going here for me. Would be interesting to walk through that whole underground complex.

The center spine is complete now.

I think they'll need a crane on Greenwich to also finish placing the concrete box beams over the northern end of the two eastern PATH tracks. There are quite a few of those beams left, and the Favco next to the north pool probably can't reach that far, plus it will probably be leaving soon. The new crane near 1WTC looks too small to be able to reach that area. The 18000 can reach there and in fact placed quite a bit of steel there about three Sundays ago, but that would be even more for it to have to do before it can leave. Finally, if a tower crane (the above Favco?) replaces the 18000, it too probably can't reach that area.

Oops my bad! I think upon looking closer that's just the worker placed the washers down prior to bolting up the structure!

It's the washers that are not aligned not the holes.

D - Truss piece.
? - No clue.

B has been placed last night, A already last week.
And the final truss piece has its brother now sitting next to it.

Also some progress on the arches..

But still some work to do for the 18000! (I hope they disassemble it before I am on vacation, want to see it "live" on webcams )

They have indeed!

The 18000 has been doing lots of lifting as well today. The east truss is finally connected to the supercolumns, and the south-east upper truss beam is being lifting into place as seen here - http://archives.earthcam.com/archive...gzrobotic1.jpg
