Potain Tower Crane at Technoteam Project
Potain tower cranes are at the heart of one of India's fastest growing cities, Kochi, on the country's west coast. Three Potain tower cranes are currently building three luxury residential developments across the city, which is the most densely populated in the state of Kerala.

The use of Potain tower cranes at dozen of projects in India is attributed to their excellent quality and versatility, as Ashwani Mattoo, Manitowoc's tower crane sales director in India, explains: "Potain cranes have built a reputation among developers in India for their reliability and productivity, ensuring contractors across the country to complete their projects on time. We also back up our products with the best customer support, advising on the most appropriate lifting solution and ensuring their needs are met – for the life of the project."

The Potain tower cranes at work in Kochi are all 5 t capacity MCi85A tower cranes. They perform a wide variety of general lifting duties at numerous high-rise, residential developments, including a 27-storey tower and a triple-tower development.

Technoteam Constructions
Technoteam Constructions purchased its first Potain MCi85A in January 2014 and the crane will spend the next three years working on the Travancore Opus Highway project, the first residential area on the highway side of the city. The MCi85A is erected internally and will climb as the building grows to its final 27-storey height.

Joby Uthuppa, partner of Technoteam Construction, commented on the company's experience with the Potain crane: "We are extremely satisfied with the quality and performance of our Potain MCi85A, and have been able to reduce the number of workers on site, saving cost and streamlining the project. We have a few more projects in the pipeline, so it's likely we will buy more Potain cranes in the future."

SILPA Projects & Infrastructure
SILPA Projects & Infrastructure is one of India's leading construction companies. The company bought its first Potain MCi85A tower crane in 2012 and put it to work immediately on the Rarajagiri Campus Court project, a pioneering development of luxury apartments in Kakkanad, Kochi.

"Following our experience with other crane companies throughout this project, we've witnessed first-hand the advantages of the Potain tower crane in terms of comfort and efficiency. We've received great feedback from our operators and the Manitowoc Crane Care service is extremely quick, which is an important factor with every product we buy. We are likely to buy more Potain cranes to support demand from future projects," said P. K. Paul, Director of SILPA.

Founded in 1985, SILPA has grown thanks to its uncompromising commitment to quality and timely delivery.

Desai Homes
Desai Homes, the construction wing of the DD group, relies on its newly purchased Potain MCi85A tower crane to build residential towers as part of the DD Diamond Valley project in Kakkanad, Kochi. The three-tower project is in its first phase where an 18-storey tower will be built within two years.

"Our company motto is high quality that comes with no compromise and it is essential for us to have reliable equipment and services to continue to excel in the development of commercial and residential projects. And Potain is helping us to do just that," said Mr. Eldho. A.V. of Desai Homes.

Desai Homes was first established in 1992 in the wake of growing demand for commercial and residential properties and infrastructure.

The MCi85A is the most popular Potain tower crane in India, and is built at the Manitowoc facility in Pune. It is designed for easy assembly and its strong load chart makes it a very versatile crane. With a 25 m (82 ft) jib, the crane can lift 3 t (3.3 USt) at jib end and with a full 50 m (164 ft) jib it can lift 1.3 t (1.43 USt) at jib end.
