I wouldn't say and Ali only looks acceptable. I've seen natural lakes that look a lot better! They're going to have a real problem very quickly unless they start doing something now.

Hi antovador.

The crane disassembly proceedure plan is (was) as follows. The revision so far is that the crane at level 99 is the Favco M220D that was on top on the North side that was taken down in Aug '07 and put up on level 99 in Nov '07 instead of an Ogawa.

The first slide is just to show the 3 tower cranes.
TC #1 at the bottom is the last of the 3 that is up there now.

Fury, thanks for the very illustrative information.

Everything was clear except the last step. How do they actually dismantle that crane? How do they get its components all the way to the ground?

thank Fury, I understand the process is nearly similar to the SWFC dismantling's crane process. I forgot the use of smaller cranes.
