Joannou & Paraskevaides (Overseas) Limited (J&P) has put three Linden Comansa flat top tower cranes to work at the extension of Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan.

With a US$640 million budget, the airport extension represents one of the country's most important projects, says Linden Comansa. It will increase the airport's capacity from the current 3 million passengers per year, to 7 million when completed in 2012.

Building contractor J&P has rail-mounted the three 18 tonne capacity Comansa 21 LC 400 flat tops, for easy access to the entire job site. The cranes have a maximum jib length of 80 m, and for this project have been erected at different heights ranging from 45 to 65.5 m.
