Kuwait’s Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Co. K.S.C.C. (JTC) has placed an order for six new Demag all-terrain cranes (ATC) from Terex. The order comprises one AC 100-4 model, three AC 130-5 models and two AC 160-5 models.
The new units expand the company’s Terex and Demag crane fleet to more than 50 units and follow other orders in the last two years in which JTC bought six other Demag ATCs, according to a statement by Terex, owners of the Demag brand.
Adel Kohari, CEO of JTC, said: “Our business continues to expand across Kuwait and Qatar. And, given the success we’ve experienced with the Demag cranes we recently purchased, we decided to add several more mobile cranes. We believe this strategy will make our crews more productive because all of the various models share common features and operate in similar ways. The whole Demag ATC line is well designed and built from small to large.”
Known for their manoeuvrability and compact chassis design, Demag all terrain cranes feature a single engine concept with an intelligent motor management system that disburses needed horsepower for lifting and travel functions, as well as all-axle steering with an independent rear axle steering and dynamic launch controls, said the statement.
JTC’s new Demag AC 100-4 has a 100t capacity classification, main boom length of 50m and maximum system length of 77m. The five-axle, 130t AC-130-5 model’s main boom can extend up to 60m and includes a maximum system length of 86.5m. The larger AC 160-5 mobile crane has a 160t capacity classification, main boom length of 68m and a maximum system length of 95m.
With the cranes scheduled for delivery later this year, Kohari said his crew is looking forward to putting the new Demags to work.
