Italian construction company Consorzio Stabile SIS has chosen four Potain top-slewing cranes for a pivotal role in the renovation of one of Italy's oldest hospitals, Policlinico di Milano.
The project is set to last approximately three years and will require the use of the Potain cranes for the duration of the construction work.
Consorzio Stabile purchased two MDT 269 J12 cranes with a maximum jib length of 213 ft. and two MDT 389 L16 cranes with maximum jib length of 246 ft., which have been mounted on site with jibs ranging from 180 to 197 ft. in length and heights under hook of up to 226 ft. The cranes will lift heavy loads and maneuver equipment around the 27,508 sq. yd. site.
The project presents particular challenges, including its historic city center location, a single narrow access road to the hospital that must not be blocked, and limited space for maneuvering heavy vehicles, the mobile crane and disassembly operations. To overcome these challenges, Manitowoc engineers, led by Matteo Pastore, have expertly planned and organized the placement of the cranes.
The team looks forward to continuing to work with Consorzio Stabile SIS to ensure the Policlinico di Milano renovation project's successful completion, as well as on other construction projects in the future.
Consorzio Stabile, a long-standing partner of Manitowoc, also counts five Grove rough-terrain models and three Potain self-erecting models in its fleet of cranes.
