Kuwait based Integrated Logistics has taken delivery of a new 650 tonne Demag CC 3800-1 crawler crane, 20 Terex AC 100/4L 100 tonne and 10 Explorer 5600 160 tonne All Terrain cranes.
The new cranes will join a fleet of more than 2,000 machines that are utilised by the company throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The CC 3800-1 lattice boom crawler crane is the first of its kind in the region. The company ordered the unit complete with a full Superlift attachment which can handle a maximum boom and jib combination of 192 metres.
The four axle 100 tonne AC100/4L boasts a 60 metre main boom, plus a 10 to 19 metre bi-fold swingaway extension and an overall width of 2.55 metres. The five axle 160 tonne Explorer 5600 single engine All Terrain crane features a seven section 68 metre main boom with a bi-fold swingaway and a 12 metre straight insert, offering a maximum tip height of 95 metres. The cranes are being deployed throughout Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Integrated’s chief executive Saleh Al Huwaidi said: “Our growth has been driven by the relentless pursuit being the best logistics provider in the region. To achieve that reputation, it is vital for Integrated to have the best equipment available and work with equipment suppliers who do an outstanding job of supporting us. Since 2005, we have purchased more than 200 Terex and Demag cranes because the machines are built well, and the team at Terex Cranes is responsive to our needs. We selected the CC 3800-1 because of its ability to outperform larger 750-tonne class cranes in many applications.”
“The All Terrain cranes have proven to be a versatility option for our crews with their extremely long booms. Our operators also like the IC-1 Plus control system equipped on these machines, which gives them access to real-time calculations to improve the machine’s performance at higher capacity ranges.”
