I also thought this was the type that would be originally set up. Exciting to see something a bit different. We so rarely see these types of cranes.

I drove by today and the crane base is in, with encroachment on Brenton Street. It looks like a new Potain base. Lead seems to stick with this manufacturer, tower sections would be inter-changeable on most models. Rapicon does rental and sales for Potain, their website shows a few luffing job options. Typically you can see the Rapicon name on the counter jib of most of Lead’s cranes.

“Developments HFX” on Facebook a photos of it, they usually have updated photos on the weekend of various construction sites.

Inspection halts construction of replacement for crane that toppled during Dorian

Quote:
When it comes to erecting cranes in downtown Halifax, it seems the third time's the charm.

Earlier this week, pieces of a new crane were arranged at the site where a previous crane had failed. Last September, the tall yellow crane collapsed in the face of strong winds from post-tropical storm Dorian, its various sections ending up draped over a nearby building.

The replacement crane has had issues now, too. Tuesday morning, crews hoisted up sections, stacked them one atop another, and bolted them together.

An inspector from the Department of Labour and Advanced Education arrived to inspect the partially assembled crane and discovered it was leaning to one side.

"The crane assembly was stopped by the developer due to the angle of the tower," said an emailed statement from Shannon Kerr, a spokesperson for the Department of Labour and Advanced Education.

The inspector ordered the developer, WM Fares, to have the crane's base assessed by an engineer.

By Wednesday morning, the base had been assessed and construction began for a third time at the site.

Looks like they are making progress. Now that I think of it this has got to be in the running for most dramatic construction project. First hit by a hurricane that caused a crane collapse then continued through a pandemic.
