Linden Comansa to attend Batimatec show in Algeria
Spanish tower crane manufacturer Linden Comansa looks to build on strong project history in Algeria
Tower crane manufacturer Linden Comansa plans to attend Batimatec, a construction and machinery exhibition held annually at the “Pins Maritimes” Expo Centre in Algiers, through its partner Sodetram, which will display the 5LC5010 crane.
This flat-top design belongs to the smallest Series of Linden Comansa and is specced to meet the most demanded requirements in the Algerian market: a maximum load capacity of 5t; jib length of between 20m and 50m; jib-end load up to 1,000kg, or 1,100kg using the standard PowerLift system, and a freestanding height of more than 50m.
Since 2013, Sodetram and Linden Comansa have maintained a strong partnership to export the cranes from the Spanish manufacturer, especially to the countries of the Maghreb in North Africa.
Sodetram was most recently responsible for providing Algerian public contractor ENGOA with five Linden Comansa 16LC260 tower cranes for the construction of the Tabellout viaduct. By the end of the project, these cranes will reach a height of 130m, which will make them the tallest in Algeria.
With their participation at Batimatec, Sodetram and Linden Comansa want not only to show the range of small Linden Comansa cranes, but also other models and series from the Spanish manufacturer that have very good reception in Algeria and neighbouring countries.
Batimatec, which is organised with the Algerian Society of Fairs and Exhibitions (SAFEX), covers 44,000m² and records over 1,000 exhibitors every year – 50% international companies from 25 other countries. This year’s edition of the show, the 19th since it began, will take place from 3-7 May.
Sodetram, based out of Marseille, France, and its subsidiary in Algiers, Sodetram Algérie, have been working in the Algerian market for 25 years, offering a wide range of machinery and equipment for all type of construction projects.
