Self Erecting Crane at Altnagelvin Hospital

Recently we placed a Self Erecting Crane at Altnagelvin Hospital in Northern Ireland.

The Pedestrian Operated Tower Crane, a Potain IGO50 is scheduled to be on site for at least 30 weeks, assisting with a construction project that is part of a STG£3m upgrade to the day surgery theatres at the hospital. This is also part of the overall STG£73m upgrade of the North Wing at Altnagelvin Hospital which is due to be completed in 2019.

The Potain IGO50 is one of the most popular Self Erecting Tower Cranes on our Tower Crane Hire Fleet. It has a 40m jib that can facilitate a 1,000kg lift at the jib end and a maximum lift of 4,000kg to 12m.

Self Erecting Cranes are particularly popular on projects like this as they are quick to mobilise, provide a safe and more efficient material handling option and can be erected on sites where the space available is restricted by the project parameters.
