Three Raimondi Cranes in Cyprus17 December 2018 by Sotiris Kanaris
Raimondi Cranes has appointed conAgro Ltd as the sole official Cypriot dealer of its tower and luffing cranes and its range of crane accessories in the country.
ConAgro, headquartered in Nicosia with a secondary office in Limassol, represents a number of global names in construction, manufacturing, concrete, heavy machinery, and agriculture.
Petros Rouvas, chief executive officer at conAgro, said: “conAgro is pleased to commence our agency appointment with the sale of three Raimondi tower cranes. As a full line provider of construction machinery, we have anticipated the demand for tower cranes in Cyprus due to its economic recovery and the subsequent growth of the local construction sector. We recognize the heritage manufacturer’s product quality and its strong support mechanisms, and have cooperated closely with Raimondi on behalf of our valued customers,” said.
Two of the new Raimondi cranes are currently operational onsite, having been sold to AMIC Contractors, the consortium behind the country’s waterfront Limassol Del Mar development. The third MRT111 crane, sold to Atlas Pantou-MAN Enterprise for the joint venture’s contracting work, will be erected at the Skytower Residence situated on the eastern side of Limassol.
Rouvas said the three MRT111 topless tower cranes were chosen for the model’s capacity to reach tower heights over 100m, while maintaining high performance measures in terms of maximum load and hoist speeds.
