Co­mansa CM tower cranes dot Perth Sta­dium

NBM&CW - - EQUIPMENT & MACHINERY -

Crane rental com­pany WA Uni­ver­sal Rig­ging and Cranes has sup­plied eight 21CM290 tower cranes from brand Co­mansa CM, sis­ter brand of Lin­den Co­mansa, for construction of the Perth Sta­dium.

The Perth Sta­dium is be­ing built in Bur­swood, very close to Perth's cen­tral busi­ness district, and on the other side of the Swan River. It will have around 60,000 seats and will be used mainly for Aus­tralian foot­ball and cricket, matches al­though it will also be suit­able for other sports such as soc­cer and rugby, and for con­certs. This, Aus­tralia's third largest sta­dium in ca­pac­ity, will of­fi­cially open on 21 Jan­uary 2018.

The Wes­ta­dium con­sor­tium – made up of John Laing, Brook­field Mul­ti­plex, Brook­field Fi­nan­cial and Brook­field Global In­te­grated So­lu­tions, was a main­te­nance con­tract, and they chose WA Uni­ver­sal Rig­ging as the tower crane sup­plier.

The 21CM290 tower cranes have a max­i­mum load ca­pac­ity of 18 t and max­i­mum reach of 74 m. All eight cranes were erected on the site with anti-col­li­sion sys­tems.

Their mod­u­lar de­sign made it pos­si­ble to erect them on fix­ing an­gles with free­stand­ing heights of 63.1 m to 75.1 m.

The tower cranes were lo­cated in what it is now the ex­ter­nal ring of the sta­dium, and they helped to build the stands by lay­ing steel struc­tures and pre­fab­ri­cated stands.

The man­u­fac­turer cites the free­stand­ing height as a key fac­tor be­hind the choice of this tower crane model for the pro­ject. A flat­top de­sign was also im­por­tant for this pro­ject, as the jibs of the cranes had to over­lap each other in cer­tain points of the job­site.

Apart from the Co­mansa tower cranes, WA Uni­ver­sal Rig­ging & Cranes also sup­plied mo­bile cranes for the construction of the sta­dium.
