IDP erects Egypt’s first Potain MCR 295 cranes for prestigious Maspero Triangle project

In July, Egyptian Potain dealer IDP successfully erected and commissioned the country’s first two Potain MCR 295 luffing jib tower cranes to help contactor Orascom Construction develop the Maspero Triangle district in downtown Cairo.

“The Potain brand’s reputation for quality and innovative technology gave us the trust and confidence to expand our fleet with the new MCR 295 cranes. We are proud to have the first units in Egypt working on this prestigious project,” said Hossam Mounir, equipment deputy director at Orascom Construction.

The 75-acre area by the River Nile is already home to many important buildings, including the Radio and Television Union Maspero building, the Foreign Ministry building, the Dar al-Maarif building, the Italian Consulate, and the Ramses Hilton Hotel.
