Moscow’s Highest skyscraper in Europe
In the middle of Moscow’s business center stands Europe’s highest skyscraper, the Federation Tower. During construction, the VIAVAC compact GB-750 was used to install glass panels. The construction of the 373.7-meter, ninety-five-floor tower, was completed in 2016.
Assembling the glass roof construction of the upper floors was particularly daunting, as the highly experienced specialized assembly team was faced with high winds, snow and temperatures down to −20° C, as well as the complicated positioning of the glass.
The roof construction’s glass elements were installed with the help of the VIAVAC compact GB-750. In order to accomplish this, the tilting function of the vacuum lifter was used to place the glass in the correct position.Less about this project
