Potain cranes deployed at UAE residential project site

ABU DHABI, June 24, 2018

The Manitowoc Company, a global manufacturer of cranes and lift solutions, said two of its Potain tower cranes have been deployed by leading contractor Six Construct for the development of a 102,000-sq-m residential complex in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The Masdar Institute Neighborhood project is being developed by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) and Mubadala Development Company.

Contractor Six Construct chose the tower cranes for their high capacity which were supplied through NFT, Potain’s Abu Dhabi-based distribution partner.

The cranes were installed at the end of January and will remain on the project until its completion, scheduled for June 2019, said a statement from NFT.

The Masdar Institute Neighborhood project is part of a sustainable community development offering 500-residential units of one and two-bedroom apartments. Project amenities include a gym, retail facilities as well as pedestrian-friendly walkways.

The MDT 259 J12 has a maximum capacity of 12 tonnes and a maximum tip capacity of 2.9 tonnes. It also features a maximum radius of 65 m and a hook height per base of 71.2 m.

Operations are controlled via the unique Crane Control System (CCS) from Manitowoc, said the statement.

CCS offers a user-friendly interface, full graphic display, ergonomic controls, a jog dial for easier navigation and data input, enhancing operator familiarization and serviceability, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
