By Niamh Marriott25 November 2021

French rental company Riviera Montage has leased six Potain tower cranes to contractor Da Mota Construction for a mixed-use complex in Nice, France.

Three Potain MDT 219s, one MDT 269 and two MDT 319 cranes were used for this project

The 54,275 metre squared complex includes residential units, offices and retail space.

Riviera Montage and Da Mota construction chose three Potain MDT 219s, one MDT 269 and two MDT 319 cranes for this project.

The cranes, which have a maximum capacity of 10 and 12 tonnes with mounting configurations ranging from 32 metres to 46 metres heigh under hook and spans between 50 and 60 metres, were installed in Spring 2021 and will remain on site until Summer 2022.

Frédéric Vella, manager of Riviera Montage, said, “Potain offers modern, reliable and easy-to-assemble cranes. The reputation of the cranes allowed us to win this project.”

“Besides their reliability, the cranes include several features that will keep the project on schedule. Most notably, Manitowoc’s CCS (Crane Control System) enables easy set-up and calibration in record time from the cab.

“The ergonomic operation, which is the same across all three models, also increases efficiency,” Vella added.

Based in Alpes-Maritimes, not far from Nice, Riviera Montage has offered Potain cranes across a vast area of the South of France since its creation in 1989.

The company’s rental fleet consists of 56 cranes, including 34 top-slewing and 22 self-erecting cranes.
