More than 110 special jacks and heavy-duty strand jacks were used for the operation.

Ithra Dubai, a subsidiary of Investment Corporation of Dubai, has accomplished a new milestone with the lift of the 192-metre-long first section of the Link now connecting the two towers of the iconic One Za'abeel, 100 metres above ground level.

The master real estate developer carried out over 12 days one of the heaviest lifts in the region, weighing in at around 8,500 tonnes. More than 110 special jacks and heavy-duty strand jacks were used for the operation, calling for a concerted effort by a team of global experts in the fields of construction, engineering and contracting.  

The first section of the Link is now in its final position. The second lift of 900 tonnes, scheduled for October, will complete the Link structure to reach its final length of 226 metres.

Issam Galadari, director and CEO of Ithra Dubai, said: "Ithra Dubai's One Za'abeel and its iconic Link are modern marvels of engineering and design, a tribute to Dubai's vision and the city's greatness. The boundless ingenuity exhibited in this project will attract visitors from all over the world by offering the best in business and leisure. One Za'abeel will soon join the list of wonders attributed to Dubai."  -
