Tower Crane on a Construction Project in Belfast

This week Mantis Cranes placed a Comansa 5211 Tower Crane on a construction project in Belfast.

Our Tower Crane Engineers worked on Monday and Tuesday to get the Tower Crane in place for the client. This is the beginning of a hire that will see the Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane on site for approximately 40 weeks.

This Linden Comansa 5211 will provide a jib length of 30m and a tower height of 24m, allowing the Crane Operator to deliver the load to exactly where it is required on the site. A 50t Mobile Crane was used to install the crane, which was placed in a lift shaft with a fixing angle.

The construction project is a housing scheme for the Clanmil Housing Assoication in Northern Ireland that includes 11 apartments and 1 retail unit. The project is due for completion in Spring 2018.
