Italy’s Raimondi Cranes SpA says it has sold and installed two new topless tower MRT111s cranes to Dar Al Adham Constructions (DAAC) for a major residential project in Dubai.
Raimondi Cranes is owned by Dubai-based KBW Investments and supplied the 8t cranes for use on the Azizi Riviera residential project by Azizi Developments in Meydan.
“The cranes are freestanding with a Height Under Hook (HUH) of 48.7m with 60m jibs. Two Raimondi Middle East erector crews were mobilised for the installations, including our operations manager,” explained Raimondi’s Middle East commercial manager Wael Hasan.
The cranes are expected to be onsite for a period of two years and Raimondi Middle East also provided three-day training to DAAC’s crane operators.
“We endeavor to continue to support our clients with the best possible customer experience. Sharing in-depth product knowledge and staging hands-on training sessions with our clients’ operators and technical staff members are a core part of service offering in the GCC,” added Hasan. “The training seminars educated the operators with the machines’ inter-cabin controls and the advancements in user experience offered by the Raimondi Deluxe R16 Crane Cabin.”
Raimondi is also providing a full maintenance package renewed monthly that includes inspection and servicing of all aspects of the cranes.
“We carefully evaluate both main and sub processes including the brakes, limit switches, lubrication, and overall wear, alignment and connection security,” commented Hasan.
The Azizi Riviera project is located on the banks of the Dubai Canal, in close proximity to Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse. In addition to residential properties, Azizi Riviera will also offer paved pedestrian paths, water transport and yachting facilities. A marina has also been proposed, all of which the developer says will contribute towards making the project an “attractive” proposition for buyers.
