Consisting of two MRT159s, two ER240s, one MRT234, and one MRT152, the cranes are situated evenly across three main locations in the centre of one Dubai’s best-known entertainment and retail districts, according to Raimondi. The flat-tops themselves are participating in the construction of a large-scale, mixed-use development in a hallmark lifestyle hub, with Wael Hassan, Commercial Director of Raimondi Middle East, highlighting Raimondi’s involvement in the project as emblematic of the manufacturer’s success in the Middle East.

“We are proud to play a vital role on this highly prized jobsite by deploying six cranes on a rental basis for one of UAE leading developers,” he said. “2023 has been a tremendous year for our company, now counting more than 50 cranes deployed across the UAE.”

The six Raimondi tower cranes are all onsite in final configurations; with both ER240-14-tonne hammerhead cranes presenting jib lengths of 50m and HUH of 57m and 59m respectively. The four cranes present HUHs ranging between 45m and 57m, with maximum jib length of 60m.

Upon completion of the project in Dubai, the development will include residential buildings, high-end amenities, retailing and commercial spaces, and one of the city’s biggest parks.

Raimondi’s tower cranes are distributed across Australia by Clark Cranes in Victoria and Strictly Cranes in New South Wales.
