Italian crane sales, rental and service company Spelgatti has supplied two Raimondi MRT189 flat-top tower cranes for the construction of a high-profile residential development, called Bosconavigli, in Milan, Italy.

The cranes were sold to the project’s contractor SMV Costruzioni – which now has a total of eight Raimondi cranes in its fleet, while Spelgatti owns more than 60 Raimondi cranes.

The two MRT189s are freestanding at heights of 64m and 58m, with jib lengths of 65m and 54m respectively. In their final configuration the flat-tops have a maximum lifting capacity of 10 tonnes, and a tip load to maximum radius of 2.20 tonnes.

“Due to the tight project schedule, along with the nature of the jobsite, we opted for high-performing machines that are also easy to install,” said Massimo Guizzetti, CEO of Spelgatti.

The cranes are equipped with a 45kW hoisting winch, with a drum capacity of 660m, and lift at a maximum speed up to 136 metres per minute.

The flat-tops are both fitted with the Raimondi Deluxe R16 crane cab. Upon completion, the new 11-storey development will feature 90 residential units, modern amenities and large outdoor areas with an ecosystem of over 170 trees, more than 8,000 shrubs, and over 60 different plant species.
