Recently, the Commission has been instructed to renovate the overhead crane in the machineroom of the lr. D.F. Woudagemaal in Lemmer.
The National Monument of Woudenberg is the world's largest steam grinder and is on the UNESCO heritage list. The nearly 100-year-old crane is part of the monument and was used to build the steam engines and pumps from its construction in 1918. Today, the crane is still working to support maintenance work.
The crane consists of a riveted half-timbered construction with a driving trolley.
The renovation consists of repair work on the lattice girders such as the replacement of rivets and the pointing of diagonal bandages. Also, the entire faucet will be adjusted and certified according to the current safety guidelines.
This revision is part of a substantial restoration of the forest. The work has started in the meantime and will be completed at the end of 2014. For more info see www.woudagemaal.nl
