Galizia for Sangwin

UK contractor and rental company Sangwin has taken delivery of a new 15 tonne Galizia G150 pick and carry crane.

The new battery electric crane, which was displayed on the GGR stand at Vertikal Days, has a maximum tip height with its three section main boom of 8.5 metres, which can be extended to 11.4 metres with the optional jib. The crane was ordered from GGR with the optional searcher hook for low headroom work. The crane features rear steering with a 90 degree crank angle in both directions for a near zero turning radius and a fully equipped cab.

Based in Hull, family run Sangwin has provided construction services since the 1880’s and formed a crane rental operation in 1969, it now runs a fleet of cranes with capacities up to 160 tonnes, along with booms, scissor lifts and telehandlers.
Sangwin’s operations director Andrew Fenton said: "There are many similarities between us and GGR, we are both family run companies with an emphasis on providing a quality service for our customers. I'm delighted with this purchase which I believe will be the first of many."

GGR sales director Michael Heneghan added: "We have forged a close working relationship with Sangwin, which has hired equipment from us for a range of jobs. To support their continued business growth in the machine installation sector, they decided to purchase a G150. As the market leader for lifting solutions with the biggest fleet and the largest capacity equipment for sale and hire, we were the natural choice for them.”
