Malaysian developer Gamuda adds three Potain MCT 385 cranes to its fleet

Gamuda - three Potain MCT 385 cranes
Malaysian equipment rental company Megah-Sewa is adding three Potain MCT 385 cranes to its fleet for the first time. Megah Sewa is the plant and equipment subsidiary of Gamuda, the largest infrastructure development company in Malaysia, and for its most recent investments, it has added three Potain topless tower cranes. The company selected these units in particular to improve project completion times and to work within its parent company’s new Gamuda Intelligent Building System division, which handles prefabricated construction.

“We have tight schedules for our projects, so we need reliable cranes that could help reduce the project time and manual labor requirements,” said Foong Seng Aun, General Manager of Megah Sewa. “Also, with the increasing popularity of precast construction, we need cranes with the capacity and reach to handle the larger components this method requires.”

The first MCT 385 was deployed at Kuala Lumpur’s Serai Development, a 21-story luxury condo that was completed in 2019. With a maximum capacity of 20 t and maximum radius of 75 m, the Potain MCT 385 with free standing height of 61.5 m and outstanding loading capacity of 6.3 t at the working radius of 50 m, was comfortably able to lift the heavy precast components and steel reinforcement used in the project. The precast concrete blocks came in a range of shapes and sizes, forming the walls, facades, shelters, ledges, and more, in the condo’s design. “The MCT 385’s compact mast and jib, plus its streamlined counter-jib, optimizes its ability to work in Kuala Lumpur’s urban areas and tight spaces,” said Aun.

The other two MCT 385 have been deployed in another project - the Cybervalley affordable home project in the Sepang District in the state of Selangor. The project is located on 14.4 acres within the Selangor Cyber Valley, a 1,300-acre planned ‘smart city’ by Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), the state’s development corporation developing this subsidized housing project.

The MCT 385 was jointly designed by Manitowoc engineers in Europe and Asia to serve a variety of markets. Other equipment in Megah-Sewa’s fleet include 12 tunnel boring machines and a wide range of earthmoving machinery. Megah-Sewa purchased all its Manitowoc cranes from dealer Inflextec Engineering (IFT), based in Kuala Lumpur. Megah-Sewa says they are very satisfied with IFT’s support and service. “Manitowoc manufactures high-quality cranes. Plus, the dealer IFT provides great service — ensuring the cranes are delivered on time and installed efficiently for a smooth project kickoff,” said Aun.
