Potain tower crane lands in Singapore

North American crane manufacturers Manitowoc have delivered the first Potain MCT 565A to a project in Singapore.

Revealed to the world in June 2022, the tower crane is expected to be immediately put to work on a jobsite comprising of three residential blocks, which is set to be completed in June 2025.

“The Potain MCT 565 A crane is a perfect choice for this first project as its compact design and shorter counter-jib make it ideal for congested jobsites, where space is at a premium,” said Johnny Kuah, regional sales manager for tower cranes at Manitowoc.

“In Singapore, we have many of these sites.”

The Potain MCT 565A, a more compact yet equally high-performance version of the 32-tonne capacity MCT 565M32, can be rigged with a minimum of 25 metres of jib – 5 metres less than the 30 metres minimum required for the regular versions.

Additionally, the counter-jib can be adjusted to a shorter length, with just 15 metres needed on the MCT 565A while still allowing the crane to work with up to 35 metres of jib, giving operators the ability to position these powerful topless cranes into tight working locations and lift larger loads.
