Raimondi flat-top tower cranes at key Dubai jobsite

DUBAI, June 24, 2019

Raimondi Cranes, a leading Italian-based group, said two of its MRT111 flat-top tower cranes had been erected on a Fujairah National Construction Company (FNC) jobsite in Dubai, UAE.

The cranes, both with jib lengths of 42 m, are currently at freestanding heights of 42 m and 48 m respectively, said a statement from Raimondi.

The MRT111, one of Raimondi’s most popular models, is sought-after for its versatility in tower height while maintaining high performance in terms of maximum load and hoist speeds.

FNC has an existing fleet that includes Raimondi cranes, it stated.

The MRT111s, fitted with the Raimondi Deluxe R16 crane cabins, are currently at work lifting materials on the jobsite, which is a development of commercial buildings under the working project name Zulekha Holding Commercial Buildings.

The offload and assembly time of both cranes took place over two days and included crane erections, supervised by Raimondi’s Middle East Operations Manager.

"The MRT111s will later be climbed to final heights of 68 m and 77 m, as required based on site progression," explained Wael Hasan, the commercial director for Middle East at Raimondi Cranes.

"FNC already had several Raimondi cranes as part of its in-house fleet. Due to the longevity and durability of Raimondi’s tower cranes and based on our strong relationship, when it was time to upgrade its fleet FNC naturally opted for two cranes from the Raimondi flattop range," stated Hasan.
 
FNC’s after-sales care package includes monthly maintenance, as well as the full crane climbing procedures, he added.

Raimondi Middle East said it had recently executed a study to best determine site requirements and optimal crane positioning.

“During the initial conversations, Raimondi Middle East executed a study to best determine site requirements and optimal crane positioning,” said Hasan.

Crane operator trainings were also executed as part of the initial agreement, while FNC’s after sales care package also includes monthly maintenance, as well as the full crane climbing procedures as required based on jobsite progression, he stated.

"The news caps a strong year so far for Raimondi in the Middle East, which has seen a variety of the manufacturer’s models go up on jobsites as varied as Aldar’s Water’s Edge development on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi and Arada’s Aljada megadevelopment in Sharjah," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
