Worldwide, about 600,000 cranes are used for construction works. They are essential for numerous construction sites. Some measure up to 200 metres in height and can lift loads of 500 tonnes.

Answers with Julien Meyer, manager at the lifting division at Bouygues Construction Matériel at Île-de-France.
