Five Raimondi cranes have been erected by Nurol Construction at two of Emaar Properties’ construction sites in Dubai.
Nurol’s fleet of Raimondi cranes at Emaar sites includes two LR213 and three MRT294 units. The latter, a topless tower, is Raimondi’s heaviest lifter.
The three MRT294s are being used at the site of Emaar’s The Cove, while the two LR213s have been erected at the construction site of Creek Gate at Dubai Creek Harbour.
Wael Hasan, Middle East commercial manager at Raimondi Cranes, said the LR213s – released globally in July 2016 – were picked for their suitability within busy construction spaces. The “high number of cranes already at work on neighbouring sites” made the LR213 luffers “ideal” for the project, “as the machines will not exceed project boundaries”.
Hasan continued: “The original site planning was executed in collaboration with Raimondi’s technical office at our Italian headquarters.
“The Raimondi Middle East operations team undertook the installations, and we will also later climb the cranes to heights required by Nurol to complete the projects.”
Nurol is also part of Raimondi’s client care and after-sales programme, which included five sets of three-day operator trainings, to be followed by monthly maintenance, plus servicing as required during the projects’ life span.
Hasan said Nurol’s fleet includes a Raimondi LR165 luffer, which is “shortly to be erected” on an Abu Dhabi site, adding: “The purchase of the five new Raimondi cranes is a testament to our continued successful relationship with Nurol.”
