Stade de Lyon takes shape in France with Potain


A huge €250 million soccer stadium is taking shape in Lyon, France, thanks to 11 Potain tower cranes that surround the 56,000 m2 job site. The cranes were erected in late 2013 and are in near-constant use at the landmark project. They offer capacities of 16 t and 20 t, and are mainly used to lift the 120,000 m3 of concrete and 7,000 t of steel needed to build the 60,000-seat stadium. Main contractor Vinci is renting the Potain tower cranes from its own equipment division, Solumat.
