Raimondi Middle East erects eight tower cranes at the Aljada megaproject in Sharjah, UAE
Seven Raimondi MRT111s and one Raimondi MRT223 are currently at work on the jobsite
Raimondi Cranes Middle East has erected eight topless tower cranes at the Aljada jobsite by UAE-based master developer, Arada. Seven Raimondi MRT111s and one Raimondi MRT223 are currently at work on the large-scale jobsite situated in the Emirate of Sharjah.
The MRT223 flattop is tasked with participating in the build of the Aljada Sales Center, designed by the globally renowned Zaha Hadid Architects. The MRT111s are positioned elsewhere on the 24 million sq. ft. megaproject, lifting site materials as part of the development’s ongoing construction.
The MRT111 crane jib lengths range from 50 meters to 60 meters while the MRT223’s jib measures in at 70 meters.
Wael Hasan, Middle East commercial director, Raimondi Cranes, said: “The MRT111s, with a maximum lifting capacity of 8 tonnes and freestanding heights, are extremely versatile. This makes this machine ideal for a jobsite of this nature; they can be relocated as needed as the project progresses.”
“Raimondi Cranes supplied teams across three groups for the different installations including supervisors. The crane erections took approximately one day per crane and involved liaising closely with the Arada development team. Raimondi was pleased to extend our support by executing the crane erection site planning,” he added.
Over 24 million sq ft size, Aljada is a master-planned destination that is set to transform the future of the Sharjah and was unveiled in September 2017. Featuring extensive residential districts, as well as a business park with 500,000 sq. m. of leasable space and the Central Hub, a new leisure and entertainment district for the UAE, Aljada is a fully self-contained lifestyle community.
