Construction Week: Klampfer erects Raimondi flat-top crane in Sharjah

Construction Week April 2017 features Klampfer's erection of Raimondi MRT152 on Novotel Sharjah jobsite

Klampfer Middle East has erected a Raimondi MRT152 flat-top tower crane on the construction site for the Novotel Expo Sharjah Hotel project, on which Klampfer is the main contractor. The MRT152 was erected on the jobsite in the UAE over a period of two and a half days.

“The free-standing height of 44m provides the contractor considerable room to build without having to worry about ties,” explained Günther Hinterberger, MD at Klampfer Middle East. “We opted for the MRT152 due to its easy erection, and because both the maximum load and the tip load are suitable for the full scope of activities on the project, no large mobile crane are required.” The MRT152 will be on site for 12 months, tasked with lifting shuttering materials, steel rebar, curtain wall components, scaffolding, bags of sand, and pallets of blocks and cement.
