Three Potain MCT 85 cranes help deliver luxury residences in India


  • Potain flat top tower cranes are being used to build a new high-end residential development in Kolkata, India.

Kolkata-based Indian real estate company PS Group is using three Potain MCT 85 topless cranes to help construct its much-anticipated residential project, PS Panache.

“The MCT 85 tower crane delivers excellent performance in terms of energy consumption and functionality,” said Ravi Kumar Dugar, director of PS Group. “We are particularly impressed by its safety features and reliability.”

The MCT 85 is built at the Manitowoc plant in Pune, India and is the successor to the hugely popular MCi 85 A. It offers a maximum jib length of 52 m and a tip load of 1.1 t. Its maximum capacity is 5 t.

Founded in 1985, PS Group has enjoyed great success since purchasing its first Potain cranes back in November 2014. Aside from the PS Panache project, the company also currently has a Potain crane working on residential project, PS Zen, a joint venture between PS Group and Srijan Realty. To date, PS Group has been involved in 78 real estate projects across India.
