L&T Potain towers on the Statue of Unity in India (26-05-2018)
Indian construction contractor Larsen & Toubro chose tower cranes to help build one of the world’s tallest monuments.
The US$470 million Statue of Unity under construction in the Indian state of Gujarat will be 182 metres tall. It is a monument dedicated to Sardar Vallabhabhai Patel, a leader on the road to India’s independence before becoming the country’s first deputy prime minister. He was known as the Iron Man of India.
L&T chose three 20 tonne capacity Potain MR 295 H20 luffing jib towers and a 10 tonne MC 205 B saddle jib tower crane for the job, which has already been running for a couple of years. The 20 tonne luffer is especially good for work in confined space, Potain said.
The MR 295 is a mid-size model designed to have a compact counter jib. It had the required free standing height, as well as the right capacity and working envelope for this project, the manufacturer continued. Capacity at the end of the maximum 60 m jib is 2.7 tonnes and on this job they have 50 m jibs. The MC 205 B lifts 2.4 tonnes at the end of its 60 m jib, which is the maximum for this model.
Loads for both cranes include rebar, concrete and steel, and also assembling the bronze fixtures for the outer cladding. Material in the structure includes 5,600 tonnes of steel and 66,000 tonnes of concrete. Cladding the structure will be 1,900 tonnes of bronze. Completion is due in October 2018.
Following the renewal of its medium-range cranes, load handling machinery manufacturer Hiab said it has now finished renewing its light range loader crane portfolio with the aim of making work easier for operators and increasing efficiency.
Hiab’s light range loader cranes are available with capacities between 4 to 11 tonne metres. There are four options for remote and manual control systems. Hiab said this means its customers can choose a system that specifically meets their required level of crane operating precision.
The renewed range also includes Hiab’s X-4 Space system. “This enables the operator to handle the crane with the greatest of ease and with higher load cycling speeds,” said Jan Vink, director, light range loader cranes, Hiab.
The cranes are made with light high-tensile steel, while an external display provides an overview of the active crane and service status.
Depending on the choice of control system, a range of features are available for improving capacity, durability, flexibility, as well as safety, said Hiab. These include a semi-automatic folding system and a load stability system.
Hiab’s light range loader cranes come with a two-year warranty, as well as a five-year warranty for the steel structure.
“To avoid unnecessary downtime in our end customers’ operations, Hiab light cranes are designed for easier everyday maintenance. Key parts and components that require regular attention are located where they are easy to access. A good example is the integrated oil tank in the crane base, which can be installed without rearranging truck components and is quicker and simpler to reach. Also, these new models can be configured with various options, to enable easy mounting on the truck chassis. The whole installation is designed for the lowest possible overall weight,” Vink added.
New 90 and 100 tonne capacity Liebherr rough terrain cranes have been put through their paces by Dubai-based Al Faris.
In January the crane rental and specialized transport company ordered 25 new cranes from Liebherr. The order included four of the 90 tonne LRT 1090-2.1 and eight of the 100 tonne LRT 1100-2.1 models.
The new cranes are pictured at the company’s new head office in Dubai, which is an expanded 177,000 square metre facility built on the site of its previous headquarters. The location houses office buildings and an extensive yard with a 28-bay workshop and paint and fabrication buildings. The location opened in the second half of 2017 and is the base for all of the company’s Dubai crane fleet. The scale of the operation is huge, with approximately 900 tonnes of crane counterweight moved in a typical day.
Al Faris also has rental locations in Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia.
