Hello,

Sorry I am a little bit late about this information!!!

I am an german intresting reader of this tread. I am very intresting to see the pictures of the building tower. Unbelefeble in what a time is gone up in the height.

Here some more information of the cranes from Germany:

There are four tower cranes from company Liebherr (3 x Liebherr 280 HC-L 16/28; 1 x Liebherr 357 HC-L 18/36) on the building lot the yellow cranes. The company Wolffkran deliver two cranes (2x WK 355 B) that the red cranes.


Mit freundlichen Grüssen aus Deutschland

Wolfgang

@whpapenburg

I understood that one liebherr crane will go all to the top (the 357).
That must be one of the yellow cranes then?

Do you have more information about the crane plan (sequence of erecting/dismantling), as made by Liebherr.
Can it be found somewhere on the Internet?
I suppose it will be kept confidential, but I would surely like to see it!

@ oud-Rotterdammer

Hallo,

That is true, some of the Liebherr cranes will go to the top, you can read this on the Liebherr webpage in the news.

Sorry that I haven't more information about the crane plan or others.

You can found some information on the German forum „Bauform24“ in the search window you can write „Kingdom tower“ and so you found two threads. One is the official news from Liebherr and the second is from „Wolff“ with pictures, because this tread is in German

Good technical information about “Wolffkran” you will found on the webpage of company „Wolffkran“

Sorry that I can't give you the Links, because I am new in this forum and I haven't enough „Post counts“

Grüße aus Deutschland

Wolfgang

They will have to be continuously reconfiguring the jump-form rig if an incline of that degree endures the whole 600 metres of the tower - notice how the yellow boxes are starting to overlap one another.

Is it just me or is any else having flash backs to when the Burj Dubai was starting to get built there was nothing around it and when it finished with construction a whole new section of dubai was built? Any idea when the first floor is going to be constructed?
