Transport and Assembly of the World's Largest Telescope for rotation testing

In the midst of the recent worldwide astronomical phenomenon known as "solar eclipse", which has captured the attention of millions of people around the world these days, we found ourselves immersed in a project that raised even more our interest in exploring the universe; while the world was watching the sky, we were busy collaborating with astronomical research by setting up the world's largest Telescope for rotation tests.

It was a challenging project that required us to deploy all our experience and skill in transporting the telescope. Transporting and handling the 12-ton container containing all the astrological material and assembling and installing the 8-ton telescope structure required precision and dexterity. However, with the commitment of our team and the expert use of industrial cranes, specifically the EFFER 1405 crane, we were able to execute a crane service in a safe and efficient manner; the same crane truck used, not only loads and transports the goods, but also takes care of the unloading and placement at the destination.

Attached is a picture of the final result of the telescope assembly so you can share our joy and achievement! 

Contributing to the advancement of science and technology is one of the myriad reasons why we are passionately dedicated to our work. At Transportes Angel Velasco, we strive to constantly overcome challenges and provide special freight solutions that make a difference.

We would like to express our thanks to all those who trusted us for this project, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate, with our cranes and truck cranes in future astronomical ventures with exciting projects.
