The recently delivered Esaote G-Scan MRI that TENESO Europe SE’s partner MTAB handled this week in Gothenburg shows that they can get pretty big… 7,5 tonnes to be exact. The fact that it needed to be delivered 5,2 meters up through a glass wall, and with a 90 cm distance from the window to the floor didn’t make it easier.
But thanks to the support from the TENESO Europe SE, MTAB was well prepared. The Italian TENESO partner Mit SafeTrans was helpful in discussions regarding different options and in analyzing what possible problems that might appear.
|1) Before the scanner arrived, the glass façade had to be removed.|
|2) There was only a 90cm clearance from the window to the floor.|
|3) The scanner arrives.|
|4) The scaffold needed a stable floor, so 1″ thick steel was used.|
|5) On the inside, a platform was built up with plywood to make it level against the ledge of the window.|
|6) Finally an even surface! Now the crew was ready for the lift.|
|7) The lift went smoothly.|
|8) Now the MRI needed to get down to the floor inside the building.|
|9) Bit by bit the plywood was removed.|
|10) Five hours after the arrival, the MRI was finally in place.|
