Potain HDT80 on an Apartment Complex

Last week we placed a Potain HDT80 on an apartment complex project in Northfield.

The HDT80, one of our largest Self Erecting Tower Cranes, is very popular presently due to the ease with which it can be placed on site, the weight it can lift and the reach on offer.

The hire term, lasting roughly 20 weeks, required a jib length of 45m and a maximum lift of 1.25 tonnes at 45 m. Additionally the height under hook required was 34m.

Our two engineers were on site early to carry out safety checks and, once these were satisfactorily completed, put the crane in place and carry out an induction with the specified crane operators for the project.
