Brambles Industrial Services has taken delivery of the UK’s first 100-tonne Sennebogen 6100HD ‘B’ series crawler magnet crane from the German crawler crane producer’s UK dealer EH Hassell. The crane is the first of two units that will be put to work at the Port Talbot steel works for main contractor Corus. Faced with arduous duty cycle work, the first unit will be working 24 hours, seven days a week on a three-shift basis in one of the Port Talbot balling pits.
Powered by a Caterpillar C15 365 kw diesel engine, the 6100HD utilises a 29-tonne rear counterweight and a 14-tonne carbody counterweight equipped with 200 kw Newton winches.
