Sendzimir Steel Plant in Krakow ( now ArcelorMittal Poland SA Unit in Krakow ) completed in 1996 in record time of almost 9 months. During repair work, about 20,000 m3 of reinforced concrete, concrete and brickwork structures were demolished and restored, and about 13,000 t of steel structures and equipment were dismantled and installed. Success of this work came, among others, from execution of work according to the unique technology developed by HPR S.A. Its essence was to prefabricate and join elements of the structure off the iron blast furnace area and their final assembly in large-size, 70-t items, with one of the largest cranes in Europe (500 Mg load capacity).
