New Development in India Takes Shape with Potain Crane

New Development in India Takes Shape with Potain Crane
A Potain MCi 85 top-slewing tower crane is leading the construction on the $67 million The Wave 1st Silver Tower retail and office development in Noida, India.

The workload on the job site is demanding, but the MCi 85 has performed perfectly, even when working around the clock. Main contractor and development company on the project is Wave Silver Tower Pvt Ltd, which took delivery of the crane in December 2009.

Vineet Jayee, deputy purchasing manager at Wave Silver Tower Pvt Ltd, said lift capacity and precision were key elements on the project.

"This is an important project, and we needed a crane that not only has the necessary lifting capacity, but also can transport loads carefully and precisely within a confined area," he said. "We thoroughly compared the Potain and another crane. The Potain was superior, and its quality is outstanding. We also like that the cranes are manufactured in India. When we purchased the crane, we wanted quick after-sales service— and we haven't been disappointed. While Potain cranes may cost a little more, the crane and service are first class."

The MCi 85 crane, built at Manitowoc's factory in Pune, India, is lifting loads at heights of 60 m and working in close proximity to other buildings. There is also a Metro line construction taking place just 20 m away. Project congestion prompted Wave Silver Tower Pvt Ltd. to seek the precise control of Potain's mechanisms for hoisting, slewing and trolleying. The company rigged the crane with 45 m of jib (short of the available 50 m maximum) and limited its slewing to 180 degrees. On the project, the crane is lifting sand, steel bars, shuttering plates and concrete, and loads weighing 2 to 3 t each.

Subhash Jha, deputy project manager for Wave Silver Tower Pvt. Ltd., said the company turned to two of its most experienced operators for this job.

"Because of the close control needed on the project and its high profile, we selected two of our most experienced operators along with two crane assistants," he said. "Both operators have over 10 years of experience and are part of the 341-strong workforce on this site."

The 15-story Wave 1st Silver Tower is located in a premier commercial square of Noida called Sector 18, Atta Market. The crane will remain on site until the project finishes in February 2011.

When complete, the Wave 1st Silver Tower will have four floors dedicated to retail and 11 dedicated to offices, each floor covering 1,850 m2. The contemporary design includes several aesthetic features including an elevated atrium, green landscaped pedestrian area and energy efficient external façade. Internally, column-free spaces allow for personalized office designs.

Potain’s MCi 85 is suited for city center projects like the Wave 1st Silver Tower. It is easy to assemble in downtown locations and has excellent lift abilities at all lengths of the jib. The crane has a free-standing height of 34.5 m and a maximum capacity of 5 t. At its maximum jib length of 50 m, the crane has a 1.3 t lift capacity.
