Crane culture

By Euan Youdale08 July 2010

Corleonis, Poland dealer for Linden Comansa, has rented an LC5211 flat top tower crane to the construction site of the Maritime Culture Centre, an extension of the Polish Maritime Museum in Gdańsk.

The €12 million new building will open in spring 2011 and house modern facilities for temporary and permanent exhibitions, workshops and offices. The exterior design will follow the line of the surrounding buildings, part of the historic Old Town.

The LC5211 has a capacity of 5 tonnes and it can lift up to 1.1 tonnes at the end of the jib. In Gdańsk the crane is erected with a 3.8 m wide cross base, 31.9 m under hook height and a jib length of 37.5 m. In an alternative configuration it could exceed a free standing height of 45 m, and have a jib length of 52.5 m.
