This week our service engineers carried out the installation of 2 Comansa 11LC90 City Tower Cranes for hire projects, one in Galashiels Scotland and one in Galway, Ireland.  The Comansa 11LC90 is a popular City Tower Crane on our fleet at Mantis Cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of 5,000kg, it is very suitable for small to medium sized projects. 

The development in Galashiels involves the construction of a new Care Home which will be 3-4 stories high.  This Comansa 11LC90 was configured with a jib length of 37.5m and a tower height of 33.7m.

The project in Galway will see the development of a new Monastery building at the Kylemore Abbey Estate.  The building will be situated just at the rear of the existing chapel and will be 3 stories high.  Kylemore Abbey has become a big tourist attraction in the West of Ireland since it has opened itself more to the public sharing the history of the Benedictine nuns.  This Comansa 11LC90 was configured with a 40m jib length and 24m tower height.

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.
