NFT Specialized in Tower Cranes has signed a contract to supply 30 tower cranes for the construction of Samsung’s factory in South Korea.

The job requires the tower cranes to lift heavy steel structures of around 28 tonnes.

NFT recommended a mix of 20 Potain MR 608s and 10 Terex Comedil CTL 630s cranes to operate at heights of 150m.

The cranes will be in operation for 14 months on a rental agreement. NFT started delivery of the cranes in January 2018 and will continue until June 2018.

The contract also includes full service and after-sales support through NFT’s local partner.

NFT maintains a stock of 2,000 tower cranes across 20 depots worldwide. The Samsung factory is one of many projects for NFT in South Korea.

The company's tower cranes have been used to build LG’s display factory with 32 tower cranes ranging from the MD 1100 to the MR 608 and MR 605 used during the construction.

Nabil Al Zahlawi, chief executive officer, NFT, said: "Every year we forecast what tower cranes are needed in different markets while working with manufacturer’s production schedules so that when there is demand, we are ready immediately.

"This project is a significant investment for NFT in Asia, and we purchased these 30 tower cranes from the manufacturers in order to supply them to Samsung on time."
