Thrust SSC & Thrust 2
The Collett Team were approached by Coventry Transport Museum to relocate Thrust 2 and Thrust SSC to their new gallery within the Museum.
Months before the actual move took place the Collett Heavy Lift Team meticulously planned the relocation, devising specialist slinging and lifting plans and transport loading techniques to facilitate the safe transport of the two valuable cargoes. Not only did this project necessitate unique lifting solutions but required the provision of specialist insurance up to a value of £14m to cover all aspects of the moves.
Arriving bright and early the Collett Heavy Lift Team began the delicate project, carefully securing Thrust 2 before hoisting over the rear gates of the Museum to an awaiting low loader.
