Installation of proton therapy machines

project installatie machine protontherapie

In the proton centre at the University Hospital in Leuven, we were engaged to install new, high-tech proton therapy devices. This installation included preparatory welding, hoisting in all components, aligning and mounting them. This was done in a tight space, with a high degree of precision and care.

A fairly complex operation with a 500T gantry crane

The new centre is located in the heart of the hospital. There was therefore not much room for manoeuvre to get the 75-tonne gantry crane and the two cyclotrons or particle accelerators weighing 57 tonnes each into place. Due to the limited space, we used our 500-tonne lifting gantry crane instead of a telescopic crane.
