Ten potain cranes are hard at work on construction of a new hospital in the Italian city of Bergamo. The top-slewing cranes on site include two MD 265B models and four 8 tonne capacity MD 175 cranes. There are also four 4 tonne capacity GTMR 336B self-erecting cranes on the job.

The cranes are configured at varying heights, ranging between 28 m and 41 m, with maximum jibs of up to 65 m. All of the cranes are equipped with Potain's LVF frequency-controlled hoist technology for smoother and faster operation.

The cranes, owned by contractor Dec Costruzioni, were delivered to the site by local Potain dealer and rental company Gruppo Effe at the start of 2006, when construction began, and will remain until completion at the end of 2009. The hospital will be named after Pope Giovanni (John) XXIII who served as head of the Catholic Church between 1958 and 1963, and was a native of the Bergamo region.
