All 11 cranes have been ordered with a fully loaded specification and are scheduled for delivery to the company’s base in Abu Dhabi by the first half of next year. The order is part of a mid-term programme by the UAE business to standardise its Rough Terrain fleet on Tadano models.

Tony Nuyts, Aertssen Middle East business manager, said: “Tadano GR Rough Terrain cranes are extremely powerful and heavy duty machines, and that makes them an indispensable part of our team.”

Established in 2009, Aertssen Machinery Services is part of the Belgian family owned Aertssen group. The company runs a fleet of All Terrain, Rough Terrain and crawler cranes, as well as low loaders and self-propelled modular transporters.
