Dubai based contractor Nurol Construction has taken delivery of five Raimondi tower cranes, two 14 tonne LR213s and three 16 tonne MRT294s.
The LR213 luffing jib tower crane features a maximum 55 metre jib with a jib tip capacity of 2,250kg. The MRT294 flat top tower crane has a 70 metre jib at which it can handle 3,500kg.
The five cranes have been erected at two separate large scale developments by Emaar Properties, the three MRT294s at The Cove, while the two LR213s are at Creek Gate at Dubai Creek Harbour.

Raimondi Middle East commercial manager Wael Hasan said: “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.”
“The purchase of the five new Raimondi cranes is a testament to our 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.
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.”
