General contractor Whiteport has purchased two new Potain MCT 205 tower cranes, both of which will be used on a range of projects around Manila, Philippines. Arthur Loscano, assistant vice president for equipment at Whiteport, said his company’s previous good experiences with Potain prompted these latest investments.
“Prior to these latest deliveries, we had nine Potain cranes in our fleet which have performed exceptionally well over the years. This gave us the confidence to invest in these two MCT 205 units,” he said. “Also, their topless design means they are better suited to the height requirements of projects close to Ninoy Aquino International Airport and are perfect for sites where overlapping cranes are required.”
The MCT 205 is a topless tower crane with a maximum capacity of 10 t and up to 65 m of jib, while it can lift 1.75 t at its maximum jib end. Whiteport’s nine other Potain cranes include MC 205, MCR 160 and MCR 225 A units. The company has built high-rise luxury developments, five-star hotels, churches and smart buildings across the Philippines.
