In the 5* hotel “Grand Park” in the fishing port of Rovinj/Croatia, a 5.2 t glass pane was installed. The biggest challenge was the tricky site situation—the XXL pane had to be fitted at the waterfront at a height of 19 metres.
The Heavydrive team opted for the VSG 6000 KMH vacuum suction system, one of the biggest systems on the market. At the site in Rovinj, the system was attached to a mobile crane, facilitating transportation of the façade element over the building to the façade opening, where it was placed directly into the transport rack. Installation of the XXL façade element was complete within just a day.
Heavydrive also installed more than 100 additional 600-kilogramme-heavy window panes in Grand Park hotel using the all-rounder suction system VSG 900 KS and cranes supplied locally.
