Today the characteristic Groninger Museum, which is surrounded by water, was one of the locations where Wagenborg Nedlift was given the opportunity to demonstrate its creativity and ingenuity.

That is why it was decided to place a 300-tonne mobile crane on the nearby Ubbo Emmiussingel, from where it could lift the unit from the roof of the museum and place the new unit, thus 'bridging' the water.
