First Self-Erecting Tower Crane Installed at Hinkley Point C
The Potain IGO T85A, one of the largest Self Erecting Crane available for rent in the UK and Ireland has numerous features which allow for faster deployment to site. Self erecting tower cranes such as the Potain IGO T85A supplied by Mantis at Hinkley Point C has many advantages, such as reduced siting expenses, faster mobilisation, quieter operation and less manual handling. This makes the Mantis self- erecting crane ideal to work alongside Big Carl for smaller jobs on site and for tight areas. The Mantis Crane supplied is from Potain’s larger IGO range of cranes that includes a telescoping lattice mast which allows it to vary its working height, growing taller as construction advances upward.
The Mantis Potain IGO T85A self-erecting cranes range have long been known for their ability to be erected in tight spaces and how the compact nature of these cranes can enable lifts from places from which no other crane could manage.
Mantis Cranes UK are proud to be involved to supplying cranes to the first new nuclear power station to be built in the UK in over 20 years, which is one of the largest construction projects in the world.
