After 2 years of planning and preparation with a large enthusiastic team, the start of disassembly and transport of the NDSM crane 13 Amsterdam is finally a fact. The NDSM crane will be completely disassembles. At the end of October the crane will be restored and replaced as a hotel to determine the skyline of Amsterdam North again.
Some 400 ton cranes, accompanied by smaller cranes from Royal Saan will start the preparations late in the night. Around 6 o’clock the imposing boom will first be dismantled and placed on a pontoon of the company Talsma Shipbuilding in Franeker. The rest of the day follows the 30 meter high tower and the heavy portal.
