Self-erectors for downtown complex

Two Potain HDT 80 self-erecting cranes are helping build an apartment complex in downtown Indianapolis, U.S. The contractor, Larry R Wagler Construction, chose the cranes for their easy assembly and ability to operate in limited space.

Larry Wagler, owner of the company, has used self-erecting cranes since 2006. “The Potain self-erecting cranes are great for compact jobsites. The cranes take very little room to set up,” he said. “They’re also quick to erect.”
On this job, the cranes are setting walls and trusses for an apartment complex called The Avenue. It is located in a crowded urban area near the Indiana University campus. Despite the small jobsite, the cranes are able to work efficiently, even with overlapping operation zones.

Potain self-erecting cranes also allow owners to eliminate a second signal person during crane operation, saving labour costs. The cab on the crane 80 travels up the mast and allows the operator to follow the load during the entire pick. Alternatively, the crane also comes with a radio remote control that runs the crane as the operator walks alongside the load. These features make for a safer jobsite.

The cranes has a maximum capacity of 6.6 tons and a maximum hook height of 53.7 m. The cranes, one owned by Larry R Wagler Construction and one rented from R. H. Marlin Crane Rental, both based in Indianapolis, will remain on the jobsite for four months.

Dynapac to upgrade the road system

Qatar’s Al Darwish Engineering WWL has invested in three new Dynapac compaction units to complete a contract for the laying and upgrading of roads in the Al Waab district of Doha, an area that is seeing extensive building of luxurious new residence.

The contractor is carrying out the work for Ashgal, Qatar’s public works authority, under a US$37 million contract that was awarded in March 2010 and which is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2012.

The latest order comprises a Dynapac CC624HF double-drum vibratory compaction roller and two pneumatic-tyred rollers. The compaction machines join Al Darwish Engineering’s existing fleet of rollers and compactors.

“Our entire road-surfacing fleet is Dynapac” says R S Boyle, Plant Manager for Al Darwish Engineering. “Using just one manufacturer helps us with planning and meeting the specifications, we have consistency in our maintenance operation, and we know that reliability in equipment and backup is part of the brand.”

“We are compacting and rolling the road surface to a specification of 98%, ” says Mr Boyle. “The CC624 compacts the surface quickly, with a maximum of six passes, and the pneumatic-tyred roller completes the surface with, again, a maximum of six passes.”

Al Waab is a district in the south of Qatar that has witnessed tremendous growth resulting in the construction of numerous residential compounds to house locals and expatriates in villas, along with commercial and medical developments.
