Nine contractors are operating 59 construction cranes on the harbour's Island District

Details have been revealed of the anti-crane collision technology being used on the construction site of Emaar’s Dubai Creek Harbour project. AMCS Technologies is providing its systems for the 59 cranes working on Dubai Creek Harbour’s Island District.

AMCS’s DCS 60 anti-collision and zoning systems are managing the equipment, which is helping nine contractors avoid interference with their cranes.

Among the project challenges AMCS is helping to mitigate is the proximity of different luffing and topless cranes on site. Due to the interference caused by this number, the construction process may be hindered by collisions between jibs and counter-jibs and jibs and cables.

Explaining the technology’s functions, Radoine Bouajaj, sales director at AMCS Technologies, said: “Anti-collision and zoning systems are essential for this spectacular project.

“The DCS 60 guarantees site safety by managing prohibited areas and interferences between cranes. It makes the work even easier by displaying useful settings for operating the crane.”

According to Baouajaj, AMCS’s anti-collision systems are playing “a fundamental role” in building “more than 33 high-rise buildings”, on which 10,000 site employees are working, according to Construction Week’s sister title, PMV Middle East.

The 6km2 Dubai Creek Harbour master development is home to Dubai Creek Tower, which achieved a construction milestone earlier this year.

Concrete placement work for Dubai Creek Tower’s pile cap was reported this May to have been completed two months ahead of schedule. A 20m-thick, multi-layered pile cap has been developed for the $1bn (AED3.67bn) skyscraper.
