Manitowoc plans to introduce two new topless tower cranes from its Potain brand at this year´s bauma China 2014 event in China. The new models are the latest innovations from the company´s Zhangjiagang plant in China.
The use of manpower to lift and load at construction sites is a thing of the past. Stiff timelines necessitating double or treble shifts and the need to enhance productivity, create safer working environments, and work in restricted job sites are firming up demand for cranes.
Tower cranes are gradually playing an increasingly vital role in construction, thus enhancing the scope for higher capacity and technologically superior varieties, Today’s construction landscape is changing rapidly – and spectacularly.
CAET XXI, a consortium of Soares da Costa, RRC (Ramalho Rosa Cobetar) and the Spanish FCC, is presently building a viaduct over the Corgo river in Vila Real, with the collaboration of two Linden Comansa tower cranes hired to Ibergru.
Linden Comansa has introduced the LC3000 series of high capacity Flat-Top Tower Cranes. This series comprises two models: 30 LC 1100 and 30 LC 1400, and each one comes with three different versions depending on their maximum load capacity 32-, 48- and 64-tonne.
