Installation of the Incity tower spire by helicopter

This metallic spire, which measures 50 metres and weighs 25.9 tonnes, took the building to its final height of 200 metres.

I used a very similar method when I fed my telephone cable through the wall to the lounge. Smaller helicopter of course. >:)

I guess the first two segments of the 25000kg tower weren't put there by helicopter. The AS-332C1 Super Puma in this video has a max. payload of around 4000 kg. Makes me wonder how they got the 14,7t element up there.
