Turkish model crane building competition

By Christian Shelton31 January 2018

Tower crane rental company and Potain dealer TeknoVinç in Turkey sponsored a model crane building competition in Istanbul aimed at inspiring the country’s next generation of engineers. The ‘Wood Tower Crane Competition’ was organised by Yıldız Technical University and featured 13 teams of expert students. Each team was tasked with building a small tower crane from wood, which was then evaluated on its uniqueness and tested using a 10 kg weight. TeknoVinç gifted the three winning teams a Potain MDT tower crane model, as well as book sets and prize money from the university.
