Potain MDT 98 plays a role in Verona Arena production


A Potain MDT 98 tower crane was used at the famed Verona Arena in Italy to change theatrical sets between productions for its entire 2016 opera season. Verona, Italy-based Toffoli Macchine rented the 6 t crane for the project, which had the crane use its 55 m jib radius to reach over the arena’s walls and assemble sets during the day. By night the crane helped dismantle the scenery. The MDT 98 replaced a Potain GTMR 386 B that was formerly used for this job for 15 years.
