Potain top-slewing crane constructs 3,000-capacity ‘BioDome’ at famous French zoo

A Potain MD 689 M40 top-slewing crane is helping to construct the new ‘BioDome’ in the famous ZooParc de Beauval in Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher, France. 

The MD 689 M40 was installed in March 2018 and is now nearing the end of the project; dismantling is planned for February 2019. When complete, the BioDome will accommodate 3,000 visitors and house Komodo dragons, hippos and manatees. 

Contractor CMF Groupe chose the MD 689 M40 due to its ability to handle high capacities and durability when tackling long-lasting jobs. 

The MD 689 M40 is the biggest of the Potain MD range. The model installed on-site features a 60-m jib and can lift up to 40 t.
