The crane equipped with a 50-m boom and installed as an internal climbing crane, will be able to cover all areas of the 10,000 m2 site where lifting is required, and will be the only crane used for the project.
The 71 EC-B 5 FR.tronic has been supplied by Liebherr India, through the company’s Mumbai office.
David Griffin, Liebherr CMCtec India´s director of sales and service for tower cranes, says that the nature of construction in India is changing fast, and that with the advent of highrise structures, more contractors are now turning towards tower cranes, in areas and cities that might not have required them in the past. "The traditional ways of working are no longer enough for many of the new projects."
"Contractors are now turning towards technology for speed, efficiency, and sheer necessity. The topic of internal climbing tower cranes is ever more prevalent in India. We feel Liebherr is the best, so we were happy to make the investment. After this project is complete, we intend to use the crane on other projects in and around Ahmedabad," said PSP projects.
The 71 EC-B 5 FR.tronic is a Flat-Top model designed for fast and easy assembling and dismantling. It has a maximum lift of 5t and a lift of 1 t at the full length of the jib. End height under hook height is around 80m.
