Two Raimondi MRT234 and two MRT189 topless tower cranes are part of the work redeveloping one of Irish capital’s most important jobsites
Official Raimondi agent, Irish Cranes and Lifting, deployed four Raimondi flattop tower cranes for the development of a mixed-use complex, Grand Canal Harbour in Dublin, Ireland. “We are delighted to support this site by renting four of our Raimondi cranes to Walls Construction, the main contractor responsible for the delivery of this project, as it marks a continuation of our business relationship on major developments,” stated Robert Coffey, Director, Irish Cranes.
“Both crane models boast ease of installation and substantial lifting capabilities. That said, the decision of supplying the MRT189 was based on the model’s excellent load curve capacity. The MRT234s were chosen for the flexibility in terms of jib and tower configurations,” he continued
Installed by Irish Cranes team between June and July 2021, the cranes will remain onsite for approximately 18 months. The MRT189s, with their maximum lifting capacity of 10t, are operating at a height of 68m and 65m with jib lengths of 43m and 49m respectively. This specific topless crane model, with one of the best load curves in its category and a newly designed gearbox, allows for enhanced productivity, machine durability, and life expectancy.
The MRT234s-12t are onsite with heights under the hook of 72m and 75m both having jib length of 49m.
“Additionally, the congested jobsite nature required strategic planning of the positioning of each machine in order to avoid oversailing and overfly of the surrounding properties,” Coffey concluded.
Upon completion, the renovated-fully pedestrianized area will feature 600 residential units arranged in six blocks ranging in height from three to thirteen stories, cafes, retail and co-working spaces, and several amenities.
