Mammoet chooses big Demags

24 April 2008

Netherlands: International heavy lift and transport specialist Mammoet has ordered a pair of heavy lift crawler cranes to add to its already extensive fleet.

Largest of the two new cranes will be a 1,700 ton capacity Terex-Demag CC 8800-1 with heavy lift equipment. It is an upgrade, using stronger boom sections, of the 1,370 ton capacity CC 8800. The crane will be operated with a joint venture partner in the Middle East and is due for delivery in 2007.

The other new crane is a 1,370 ton capacity Terex-Demag CC 6800. The crawler, rated at 13,800 tonne-metres, has an 11 foot wide boom and is an upgrade of the 1,100 ton capacity CC 5800 first seen in iron last November.
