Potain´s MC 205 B helps erect Argentina´s tallest building

The Alvear Tower in downtown Buenos Aires will become the tallest building in Argentina when completed later this year. Two Potain MC 205 B tower cranes and their quick line speed have been specifically chosen to help build the 235 m (771 ft) tower.

The Potain MC 205 B cranes can achieve line speeds approaching 117 m (384 ft) per minute. The cranes can be used in either two-fall or four-fall reeving and are ideal for high-rise buildings that exceed 200 m (656 ft) in height. With 550 m (1,804 ft) of rope capacity on the winch´s drum, the crane was the perfect choice for Alvear Tower.
