I think someone mentioned earlier that they were that high to be taller than the power lines.
To add to that, on windy days, when the cranes are not in operation, they are pointed in to the wind, I am guessing that might be another reason to make them taller than the power-lines. We don't get a lot of east-west wind around here, but you never know.
