Chicago, IL-based Imperial Cranes dispatched eight cranes to a refinery to perform clean-up work after a fire.

A fire at the Citgo Refinery in Lemont, IL required the work of eight cranes from the fleet of Chicago-based Imperial Crane. The cranes were dispatched on October 23 after the blaze was contained.

Cranes working in the refinery clean-up included a 500-ton capacity Liebherr LTM 1400, two 300 ton capacity Liebherr 1250s, two 240-ton Liebherr 1200, a 90-ton capacity Grove TMS 900 and two 90-ton capacity Link Belt RTC 8090s.

Imperial Cranes said the cranes could be at the refinery for up to a year doing the massive repair work required.
