Potain cranes at the construction of hospital complex in Denmark

A large fleet of 15 Potain tower cranes is hard at work, helping construct a new hospital complex for Aalborg University in Denmark. The job site is vast, stretching across 330,000 sq m (81.5 acres) that also contain several other buildings, and vehicular and pedestrian paths.

MT Højgaard, the contractor at the project, chose a mix of three Potain models to work on the job site: eight Potain GTMR 386 B self-erecting cranes, six Potain MDT 178 tower cranes and one Potain MDT 218 A J10. The company chose the cranes for their job site flexibility and lifting capacities.

Ajos, the Danish Potain dealer and construction equipment rental company, supplied the cranes. It chose a fleet that could adapt to the variety of conditions and obstacles found across the immense job site.

The cranes are positioned throughout the site and are lifting steel, concrete and formwork materials, with the heaviest load weighing approximately 6 t (6.6 USt).
