Helicopter in the city
HKA worked with the Port Authority of NSW to relocate a key Radar facility within the Authority’s Vessel Tracking System for Sydney Harbour and Port Botany.
The existing Radar’s location on the top of the AMP Centre, at a height of 188 metres, required the use of a helicopter to lower the Radar antenna to street level and involved a CBD road closure. View video of the operation
Crane at Darling Point
The Radar’s new home at Darling Point is on Longwood House – which, being 66 metres high, allowed the use of a crane to complete the operation .
The crane lifted not only the radar assembly that was relocated from the AMP Centre, but also a new Tower and Control Hut. View video of the day
