Comansa for historic bridge

India’s Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) has taken delivery of a 25 tonne Comansa 21CM550 tower crane to work on the Anji Khad Bridge project, the country’s first cable-stay railway bridge.

The 21CM550 offers a maximum jib length of 82.1 metres with a jib tip capacity of 3,600kg - or 3,960kg using its Power Lift system - and has a maximum free standing height of 86.4 metres. Features include Comansa’s automatic double trolley change, its Power Lift system that provides 10 percent improved capacities when operating at reduced speeds and a lightening protection system.
