    Grove GHC55s enable new solar panel assembly technique

    Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Mortenson Construction is using a trio of Grove GHC55 telescoping crawler cranes to perform a new method of solar panel assembly and installation at the Alamo solar farms in Uvalde, Texas. Traditionally, solar panels have been constructed by adjoining several 2 ft by 3 ft modules, each requiring a separate lift. The GHC cranes operate with 100 percent pick and carry capability, increasing efficiency on the jobsite. This allows Mortenson to combine 15 or 20 modules together on a table and then carry them into place to lift about 20 ft in the air for installation. The heaviest picks weigh up to 3.5 USt.

    Corpinsa grows Potain fleet with fourth MCR 160 in Panama

    Panama City’s Corpinsa, one of Manitowoc’s largest distributors in Central America, has just added its fourth Potain MCR 160 to its fleet. The tower crane is already at work, helping build residential towers along the waterfront in Panama City. According to CEO Raymond Mizrachi, the company wanted to invest in tower cranes that can be easily placed inside buildings during construction — a capability for which the 10 t (11 USt) MCR 160 is becoming known, thanks in part to Corpinsa bringing them visibility in the country. The MCR 160 can be assembled on both 1.6 m (5.2 ft) and 2 m (6.5 ft)-wide mast sections and boasts 10 t (11 USt) of maximum capacity. It can be rigged with up to 50 m (164 ft) of main jib, offering a 2.4 t (2.6 USt) jib-end load capacity.
