Al Akkad National Projects erects two Raimondi MRT111 topless tower cranes at Al Khaiat Building project
The two cranes have freestanding heights of 41.55m and 47.25m, and both are fitted with 60m jibs
Oman-based construction company Al Akkad National Projects has erected two Raimondi MRT111 topless tower cranes at the Al Khaiat Building project, a mixed use development in Muscat. Installed over a period of three days, the cranes are expected to be in use for 18-20 months. Raimondi and Al Akkad strategized the crane installations to overcome space constraints on the site.
Wael Hasan, Middle East commercial manager, Raimondi Cranes, said: “The two MRT111s were originally purchased in 2014, and have served Al Akkad extremely well across multiple Gulf worksites over the past four years. To meet this new development’s work height requirements, Al Akkad purchased new additional sections for the cranes. The two MRT111s have freestanding heights of 41.55m and 47.25m including embedded elements, and both are fitted with 60m jibs.”
“As part of our ongoing after sales service and care programs, Raimondi Middle East provided training and product knowledge inductions to the client’s technicians and crane operators for three days. Raimondi also supplied one electrician and two erectors under the supervision of the Middle East operations manager to the jobsite,” he added.
