Tower Crane on the City Quay development in Dublin

Recently our service team hit the waterfront where they erected a Tower Crane on the City Quay development in Dublin.

This particular crane is an FM GRU 1035 Tower Crane which will be working for roughly around 12 weeks on the project. The project itself is a Grade A office development overlooking the River Liffey. This means once complete, the building will be in one of Dublin’s prime and most sought after locations.

For this project our engineers configured the Tower Crane to have a 25 metre jib and 29 metre tower. This particular crane has a max lift capacity of up to 2,500kg.

    When restoring historic buildings, care must be taken to preserve these buildings for future generations. Cranes play a crucial role in this process and provide the necessary means of material handling, access, precision, and safety required to carry out restorations without causing additional damage. Over the years, Mantis Cranes have been involved in a number of iconic projects in some recognisable places that involved considerable planning not just to put the crane in place but also for the daily management of materials handling.
