Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment Complex

We currently have a Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment Complex project in Notthingham.

This project involves the construction of 18 one bedroom apartments over a three-storey building, along with two 2-bedroom houses. The site is the location of the, now closed, Grove Public House. The development is located on a busy junction. This is part of a scheme to provide more social housing by Gedling Borough Council.

Potain IGO50 Self Erecting Tower Crane on an Apartment ComplexMantis Cranes placed the Potain IGO on site providing a maximum lift of 1 tonne at 40 metres and a height under hook of 23.2m. This model of Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane was ideal for the project as it can operate on a site with restricted access while maintaining the ability to deliver heavy loads directly to the point of work – without affecting local traffic or reducing site safety.

Self Erecting Tower Crane Advantages

  • Increased safety due to less machinery movements on site
  • Delivery of the load directly to the point of work
  • Quicker installation and dismantling times than other material-handling solutions, resulting in less disruption to other work on site
  • Able to operate safely in restricted areas
