Raimondi cranes in Milan

12 January 2021

Assistedile, Raimondi Cranes agent for Milan, has erected seven crane for the construction of the Sei Milano development in Sella Nuova, on the West side of the Italian city.

The development will comprise residential complex with 524 apartments, commercial spaces and green spaces.

 “We proud to contribute to the development of our city, and to serve Borio Mangiarotti, one of Italy’s most noted construction companies, on this occasion. Divided into three main areas, the development offered us the possibility to supply different crane models to best meet the jobsite requirements and client needs,” said Luciano Friso, managing director at Assistedile.

Six Raimondi cranes are used for the construction of the residential building, an MR99 hammerhead belonging to the contractor as well as five flat tops (four MRT84 and one MRT102) on rental. Erected over a period of two days, the flattops will remain at work for a period of approximately 16 months.

An additional three rented flat top cranes will be at work on the commercial area of the project. An MRT159 has already been erected with a jib length of 65m and a height of 92m. Friso said that it is currently the highest freestanding machine in Italy.

One Raimondi SRT85 and one MRT213 will be erected by the end of January at heights of 58m and 80m respectively. The MRT213 will also be freestanding and will have a jib of 66m. These cranes will remain at work for approximately 22 months, until completion of the project.
