Bennetts Cranes which is helping over the residential developer St George in London has noted a fresh record. The tower crane owner of Raimondi LR 213 at Chelsea Creek is now standing tall at a maximum of 105 meters.
The tallest freestanding tower crane is currently working in the UK while it’s a luffing jib crane free standing at such a height which is unusual. The crane company based out of Gloucestershire has erected the Raimondi LR 213 tower crane in August 2020 at Chelsea Creek.
In general, typical freestanding luffing jib cranes would be between 30 and 60 metres tall and carry residential development operations. However, there are few other cranes reaching 70 metres or more, and occasionally.
A team from Bennetts Cranes used a 1,000 tonne mobile crane to add mast sections over the Easter weekend (3-4 April). This is to increase the height of the LR 213 from 55 metres to 105 metres.
