London is based on a 150-year-old sewage system built for a population less than half its current size.

Like many ancient cities around the world, most of London has a ‘combined’ sewage system, that collects not only the wastewater from sinks, showers and washing machines, but also the runoff of rainwater from roads, canals and sidewalks. Although the sewers remain in excellent condition, they lack the capacity to meet the demands of modern London. As a result, millions of tons of untreated sewage spills flow into the River Thames each year. To improve this sewerage system, the Tideway company is building a 25 km tunnel under the London River that will prevent tens of millions of tons of sewage from contaminating the River Thames every year. The Thames Tideway Tunnel will provide the needed capacity to address the current pollution problem and provide a suitable system for the future. However, by the tunnel, the sustainable drainage systems will also play their part. Although now, it is not viable to separate the sewer system, reducing the amount of rainwater entering the sewers will extend the useful life of the tunnel. This necessary expansion of London’s sewage network, to be completed by 2024, is being developed at 24 construction points in London. These range from Acton in west London to Beckton in the east, and many are located on the river bank in the city centre. For the development of this work, GH Cranes has designed and manufactured different lifting elements, commissioned by a UTE constituted between Ferrovial and Laing O Rourke (FLO, JV):

  • Two double rail bridge cranes with 55/15 Tn GHK open trolley capacity. With a light of 35m and an elevation height of 72.6m. These cranes are designed to work intensively in M8 workgroups. Both cranes are ready to work in tandem mode or independently. The cabin is suspended from the trolley for greater control over the load.
  • A gantry crane that has an open trolley of 30/15 Tn capacity that runs over a 26m route and another 3.5m overhang. Tris gantry is used among other things to feed the tunneler with the keystones for the lining of the tunnel walls.

The Tideway project will bring thousands of jobs, a rejuvenated river economy and completely new areas of public space.

Bianna Recycling was in charge of building the Alt Empordà Waste Treatment Centre, with the capacity to receive and treat up to 60.000 tonnes per year.

Bianna Recycling is dedicated to the manufacture of equipment for waste treatment as well as to engineering, consulting, advisory and maintenance services.

In anticipation of the progressive growth of selective collection and the remaining fraction, the facility is designed to take on future capacity scenarios without the need to make modifications.

In this plant, the remains of organic matter of rejection will be stabilized and valuable materials will be recovered, these being delivered to a waste manager for recycle, reducing this way much of the amount of waste that the controlled tank takes.

After the process of selective collection, decomposition and composting of the organic, a mechanical pre-treatment will be carried out to separate unsuitable waste, and the product will be matured to obtain a quality compound for agricultural use. The capacity of the organic fraction treatment is about 10.000 tons per year.

The facility will serve about 140.000 inhabitants, in an area that receives the effects of the seasonality of the population, as a result of the impact of tourism.

These facilities have a double rail bridge crane with open carriage made by GH CRANES & COMPONENTS and specially designed to withstand work in such aggressive environments for the proper functioning of the mechanisms.

The crane, with a load capacity up to 8t, equipped with an electrohydraulic activation orange peel grabs, is manipulated by the operator through a fixed cabin which allows to control all operations by means of the installed cameras.

GH gets its biggest ever order in the external market

The project consists of providing equipment dor a 4800 MW plant in Egypt. Our customers is ORASCOM, the main building company in that country, with which we have a long trajectory of co-operation, with GH providing important deliveries in the past.


This project is an important step forward for GH and a reaffirment for our international projection. The requirements, made both by the Egyptian company and by its European partner, position us in the best situation to address these challenges in the future.

To finance this important infrastructure in the African country, ORASCOM has temporarily merged with SIEMENS. Funding will be provided by the an Italian organism supporting development of African countries.

The order consists of twenty cranes, eight of which are open winch, and the amount is € 6.3 million The African continent is GH’s next expansion challenge and Egypt is one of the ports of entry to this important market in the future.

GH consigue el mayor pedido de su historia en el mercado exterior.

El proyecto consiste en el equipamiento de una planta de ciclo combinado de 4800 MW en Egipto. Nuestro cliente es ORASCOM y es la principal empresa de construcción de Egipto con la que ya tenemos una amplia trayectoria de varios suministros importantes que GH ha realizado anteriormente con esta empresa egipcia.

Este proyecto supone un espaldarazo para GH y la confirmación de nuestra proyección internacional. Las exigencias en materia técnica tanto de la empresa egipcia como de su socio europeo nos colocan en la mejor posición para abordar proyectos de este tipo en el futuro.


Para abordar esta importante infraestructura para el país africano, ORASCOM ha hecho una UTE con SIEMENS. El proyecto ha sido financiado por un organismo Italiano para el desarrollo de países africanos.

El pedido consiste en 20 grúas puente, ocho de ellas con carro abierto y asciende a 6,3 millones de Euros.

El continente africano supone el próximo reto de GH en su expansión internacional y Egipto es una de las puertas de entrada a este importante mercado para el futuro.
