Nurol Construction Co has put two Raimondi luffers to work on the Corniche Tower jobsite in Abu Dhabi. The Raimondi LR165, part of Nurol’s existing fleet, is accompanied by a new luffing LR213 recently purchased by Nurol. The new tower, a 35-storey mixed use development, is located on the emirate’s sought-after waterfront.
“Raimondi Middle East supported Nurol with the sale of the LR213 equipped with the Deluxe R16 crane cabin. As part of the contractor’s fleet upgrade, the luffing LR213 was chosen for its maximum lifting capacity of 14 tonnes and its versatility in areas with difficult to obtain fly-over permissions. This jobsite has multiple security restrictions together with an extremely congested set of high rise developments, so much of our team’s support focused on site planning ahead of the installations,” explained Wael Hasan, Middle East Commercial Director, Raimondi Cranes.
The LR165, with a 55 m jib length and an Height Under Hook (HUH) of 45 m will eventually be climbed to 172 m, while the LR213 55 m jib length and an HUH of 45 m will eventually be climbed to 187 m. To best service Nurol for the jobsite, Raimondi initially provided three day crane operator training sessions. The Corniche Tower jobsite is also subscribed to the monthly maintenance program offered by Raimondi Middle East.
