Danubian Building Machines Servicing Corporation (Dunagep), one of Hungary's largest crane rental specialists, has taken delivery of an eight axle 500 tonne Terex AC500-2, its largest All Terrain crane to date. The new crane has a 56 metre main boom plus luffing jib and a Superlift attachment. Maximum system length is 145.8 metres.
The company, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, is based in Budapest with subsidiaries in Slovakia and Croatia. It mainly serves the steel, refinery and petrochemical industries, and the crane will make its lifting debut working in an Hungarian power plant.
Dunagep chairman Laszlo Szecsenfalvi, said: "This is a great crane and we had no hesitation in choosing it in preference to other makes. Good transport logistics, quick set-up, long reach and reliability are just some of its many features. It has added a whole new dimension to our product line-up."
Terex sales manager, Andreas Schramm, added: "The AC500-2 crane will enable Dunagep to accept and undertake work that previously would have necessitated working in conjunction with industry partners. Now they will be in a position to complete these larger projects themselves."
