Look at A-Frame cables now missing, in addition to no lights on this crane tonight.
I think you're right.

If you have chance, can you please take some pics of the dismantling process.
I'm very interested to see it. Thanks.

Will do, but I think this will be a daylight process for a number of safety reasons.

this means the cladding can spread to the side of the floors where it was hidden by the crane, and the top of the tower will look much more like it should be.

He meant to say the wall thickness decreases there while the OD remains the same at 1.200 m. for the entire tier 30.

Great shots Dennis and OTR. Hey OTR are you gonna update your steel timetable ? - it is great work.

Obviously they will use the bigger/higher crane to take down the smaller/shorter one. Figured we would be down to one crane at the top some time.

As soon as this crane is down I think we will start seeing the other crane come down. I mean the one that much lower than these two.

I think the tallest crane remaining will climb down to a point where a it will be dismantled by a derrick crane... The derrick would be lifted up by the last of the big cranes..the Derrick which can't handle a long drop line will lower down to the lowest of the FAVCO Cranes at 300-metres.. It'll be used as a staging point.. A smaller derrick will then drop it down to the last of the FAVCO's and they repeat the operation.. the smallest derrick can be taken down in the lifts.. It's basically the same process they used on WTC in Shanghai..
