Leading Indian Contractor Relies on Manitowoc's Potain Cranes at Landmark Development

One of India's largest contractors is using three of its seven-strong fleet of Manitowoc's Potain tower cranes to build Wave One – a landmark commercial development in Noida in north India. Leighton Welspun Contractors Pvt. Ltd. deployed the MC 125s at the job site in 2011 and they will continue to work 22 hours a day, everyday at the project until 2014.

Leighton Welspun purchased its first 6 t capacity Potain MC 115 B in 2007. It didn't take long for Potain's impressive quality, combined with the professionalism of Manitowoc Crane Care's support service, to prove itself, as Sanjeet Singh Malik, plant manager at Leighton Welspun, explains.

"Potain cranes are exceptional – they are easy to use, quick to erect and perform tirelessly on the job site to keep our projects moving. We are responsible for several landmark developments across India, so we need cranes, we can rely on an expert support service to fall back on. Manitowoc gives us both of these things and we are very proud of our Potain fleet."

Wave One is typical of the work that Leighton Welspun's Potain cranes perform; a high-rise development in the heart of a city, surrounded by busy streets with a demanding schedule. The MC 125s are working almost constantly pouring concrete and lifting general construction materials to build two 41-storey towers at the project.

The Potain MC125s are external climbing units currently erected at heights of 68m, 74 m and 80 m. All of the cranes will reach a final working height of approximately 140 m. Two are configured with 45 m jibs and one with a 50 m jib, to cover the entire 230,000 m2 job site.

Located near New Delhi, Wave One is a mixed-use commercial development comprising high-end offices, retail space, cinemas, and restaurants.

The four other Potain MC 125s in Leighton Welspun's fleet are working at job sites across the country, including the Tritvam residential project in Kochi and the Ramanujam Information Technology Park in Chennai.

Potain's MC 125 is a compact city crane that offers a maximum jib length of 60 m, at which it can lift 1.15 t. The crane uses Potain's pin-connected mast sections for fast erection.

Established in 1998, Leighton Welspun employs more than 10,000 people who specialise in residential, commercial and retail construction across India. The company is a part of Leighton Holdings Group, Australia's leading construction, mining and project development company.
