Five new Raimondi cranes for Nurol Construction
By Christian Shelton06 July 2018
Turkish-headquartered international contractor Nurol Construction Company has taken delivery of five new Raimondi tower cranes to add to its existing fleet in the United Arab Emirates.
The order comprised two LR213s and three MRT294s, which Raimondi reports are already at work across two of the contractor’s jobsites: Creek Gate at Dubai Creek Harbour and The Cove, respectively. Both are large-scale developments in Dubai owned by Dubai-based global property developer Emaar Properties.
“The original site planning was executed in collaboration with Raimondi’s technical office at our Italian headquarters,” said Wael Hasan, Middle East commercial manager, Raimondi Cranes. “The Raimondi Middle East operations team undertook the installations, and we will also later climb the cranes to heights required by Nurol to complete the projects.”
Hasan added that the LR213s specifically met the project’s requirements due to an extremely congested jobsite, with a high number of cranes already at work on neighbouring sites, making the luffers suitable as they remain within project boundaries.
As part of the Nurol client care and after sales package, Raimondi’s Middle East operations team executed five three-day crane operator training sessions and will continue to perform monthly maintenance and servicing throughout the duration of the two projects.
