Assistedile Srl, official agent of Italy for the province of Milan and Monza Brianza, has deployed three Raimondi flattop tower cranes for the construction of three new residential towers in the Northern area of Milan, Italy. The MRT102 and the MRT159 were installed with heights of 59m and 80m respectively, and jib lengths ranging between 30m and 34m. The MRT234, a 12t maximum lifting capacity machine, is freestanding at the impressive height of 90m with a jib of 65m.

The decision to rent to the contractor, Ediltecno Restauri Srl, one Raimondi MRT234, one MRT159, and one MRT102, came from the necessity of having machines with big lifting capacity matched with excellent hoist speed that would allow us to boost site productivity. Onsite we have flattops lifting a maximum of 12tn equipped with up to 55kW hoisting winch like the MRT234,” said Luciano Friso, Chief Executive Officer, Assistedile. 

Installed between in Q4 of 2021, the cranes will remain on site for approximately 18 to 20 months, lifting concrete panels and other construction materials. Upon completion, Trilogy Towers will consist of three eco-sustainable residential blocks – Gold, Diamond, and Platinum – comprised of 12, 14 and 17 storeys. Facing the future American consulate and Monte Stella, an artificial hill surrounding the city’s park, the towers will include various services such as fitness and green areas, a playground, and several recreational spaces.
