Abu Dhabi-based Nurol Construction Company has taken delivery of five Raimondi cranes - two LR213s and three MRT294s - for deployment in the UAE.
These cranes are already at work in two of Emaar's projects - Dubai Creek Harbour and The Cove, said a statement from Raimondi.
As part of the Nurol client care and after-sales package, the Italian group said its Middle East operations team has executed five three-day crane operator training programmes, and will continue to perform monthly maintenance and servicing when required throughout the duration of the projects.
Five of the Nurol group's cranes are currently erected at two separate large-scale developments by Emaar Properties. Three MRT294s are situated at The Cove, while the two LR213s are positioned at Creek Gate at Dubai Creek Harbor.
"The original site planning was executed in collaboration with Raimondi’s Technical Office at our Italian headquarters. The Raimondi Middle East operations team undertook the installations, and we will also later climb the cranes to heights required by Nurol to complete the projects," remarked Wael Hasan, Middle East commercial manager for Raimondi Cranes.
Hasan said that the LR213s specifically met the project’s requirements due to an extremely congested area with a high number of cranes already at work on neighbouring sites, making the luffers ideal as the machines will not exceed project boundaries.
Released into the global market in July 2016, the LR213 is now one of Raimondi’s most popular models attributed partially due to its easy erection process and its onsite versatility, he added.
Hsasn said the purchase of the five new Raimondi cranes was a testament to its continued successful relationship with Nurol.
"The company’s fleet already included a Raimondi luffing LR165 that has supported the build of many of the company’s projects in the UAE, and it’s scheduled shortly to be erected on yet another Nurol site in Abu Dhabi," noted the top official.
"The impressive performance and demonstrated durability of this luffer convinced Nurol to consider our newer models: the LR213, and the heaviest lifter in our range, the MRT294 topless tower," he added.
