This week our service engineers carried out the Installation of Another City Tower Crane at BlueBell Avenue in Dublin.   The hire period for this crane is set to be at least 40 weeks. 

A Potain MC85B was the City Tower Crane placed on this site.  It is the second City Tower Crane that we have placed here as a Saez TL 55 was installed a number of weeks ago.   The project will see the development of 2 new Apartment Blocks, one being 4 stories high and the other being 7 stories high.
