First Potain IGO T 130 delivered - with crane ballast from Bruckert
Ajos, Manitowoc's Danish dealer for tower cranes, has received the first Potain Igo T 130. Executive employees of Ajos and Manitowoc assembled for the handover in Charlieu, France, where the Potain is manufactured. The crane ballast was delivered by Bruckert.
Ajos, Manitowoc's Danish dealer for tower cranes, has received the first Potain Igo T 130. It performs its work south of Aarhus at the construction of an exhibition centre for the Moesgaard Museum.
The crane arrives at the construction site south of Aarhus
Torben Bloch Nielsen, sales manager at Ajos, is satisfied with the new arrival. "Self-assembling cranes are widely used in Denmark and are often preferred over smaller top slewing cranes. Our crane operator says the Igo T 130 has lightning fast reaction times and likewise efficient and precise steering. We expect a high demand for this crane, particularly for large infrastructure projects."

Executive employees of Ajos and Manitowoc assembled for the handover in Charlieu, France, where the Potain is manufactured. In March the tower crane was dispatched to Denmark. There it is contracted for the next one and a half years.
According to Nielsen, the Igo T 130 is well suited for the job, for which some heavy lifitng is lined up. Even a composite column system for supporting the roof construction must be lifted into position.
And the new crane goes to work
The crane is operational in less than four hours, assures the manufacturer. It is the largest model by Potain. Prior to this, Ajos had acquired an Igo T 85 with 6 tonne capacity. The fact that the crane can be set up by only one person convinced the Danes, so they ordered the big brother without hesitation.
The crane is closely monitored by Ajos and Manitowoc as part of the pre-production partner programme. Any required changes will be made prior to the start of the series production. Ajos has 130 employees and offers a fleet of 60 Potain cranes.
