Using a 700-tonne mobile crane with luffing jib and guying jib, the tower was lifted from its foundation. In the air, the tower was taken over by a 500-tonne mobile crane (also fitted with a luffing jib) with the aid of a lifting beam. Together with an 80-tonne mobile crane, the tower was lifted and positioned on the lay-down. Ready to be scrapped. An impressive piece of craftsmanship!
