I thought I would post this video which was probably taken before the 2 red cranes were installed. Ignore the date in the video.

Yet, i can't find hight of crane. It seems it can be composed of elements to desired hight.

In the photo updates, you can tell that:
  • two luffing Wolffkran cranes will be internal jumping cranes as they don't have any jumping cages and will be in the core as they are close together
  • the luffing Liebherr on the left has a jumping cage and is relatively close to one of the wings, suggesting it'll most likely be externally climbed.
  • the hammer head trolley jib crane has no jumping cage and is placed further away, suggesting it is only temporary.



That's my guess...

I can imagine a 3rd wolff crane will be installed soon. On Burj Khalifa they were also working with 3 cranes at the core.

Seems Wolff tries to hold down their spendings on salary for workers.
This seems appropriate as with BK, these projects only seem affordable when the companies that win the bids don't pay their workers a fair wage. I'm assuming that the same blue army that built BK will be imported to build KT as well.
