Trio of Potain cranes construct hospital of the future in Treviso, Italy

  • Contractor and developer Carron Group has deployed a Potain MDT 219 J10, MD 185 B and MC 85 B for the Cittadella della Salute “Citadel of Health” project in Treviso, northern Italy.
  • The €180 million project involves the renovation and expansion of the city’s existing hospital to create a new 167,000 m2 state-of-the-art facility that will be among the most technologically advanced in the country. 
  • Carron Group, a Manitowoc customer of 25 years, chose Potain for the brand’s reliable quality, innovative technology and outstanding service support.

Longstanding Manitowoc customer Carron Group has selected a Potain MDT 219 J10, MD 185 B and MC 85 B for a major hospital modernization and expansion project in Treviso, northern Italy. 

With responsibility for both the design and construction, Carron is adding 90,000 m2 of new facilities to the existing 57,000 m2 hospital buildings across the entire 167,000 m2 site.  

This new Cittadella della Salute “Citadel of Health” will meet the latest energy efficiency and environmental standards and serve as a model for other modern healthcare facilities across Italy.

“The Cittadella della Salute project is part of a vast program of interventions that will lead to a complete renovation of the hospital and health organization. The new hospital will be more efficient, welcoming, flexible and much more technological,” said Carron project manager Filippo Bordignon.

Work began on the €180 million project in March 2018 and is planned for completion by Spring 2021. The quality and productivity of the Potain tower cranes, along with the efficiency of the Manitowoc service team, have been key in keeping progress on track. 

“The Potain brand has always been a guarantee in terms of quality and technology applied to construction sites and its service assistance. So far Manitowoc has been extremely efficient and skilful in terms of promptness and professionality. The Potain service team reacts quickly, avoiding a potential slowdown of productivity on site,” Bordignon said.

Carron Group is recognized as one of the most important construction and restoration companies in Italy, working on approximately 35 projects per year and generating an annual turnover of around €250 million. The company was founded in 1963 by Angelo Carron and is now run by his five children, who lead an organization of 300 full-time employees and 1,200 laborers. Headquartered in San Zenone degli Ezzelini, Treviso, the company also operates in Trentino-Alto Adige. Carron Group has been a Manitowoc customer for 25 years.
