More Spierings eLifts for Schot
Dutch crane rental company Schot Verticaal Transport has ordered five more battery powered Spierings eLift self-erecting mobile tower cranes. The new machines will take the Schot eLift fleet to nine units.
The new order includes three four axle SK597-AT4 eLift and one six axle SK1265-AT6 eLift. The eLift system allows the crane to plug into a 16 or 32 Amp connection. The investment is a key part of Schot’s programme to make their crane fleet more sustainable. Schott took delivery of the first six axle SK1265-AT6 eLift
at the end of 2020.

Managing director Roel van der Heide said: “At Bauma 2019, we saw this new innovation in emission free lifting for the first time. We were immediately enthusiastic and ordered the first zero-emission eLift crane there and then. In the meantime, emission free construction has become even more important, and we expect that the demand will only increase in the future. The possibility to use the crane electrically from a small 16Amp connection makes it possible to work emission free at almost any construction site.”
Schot Verticaal Transport is part of the Schot group which was founded in 1931 by Gijs Schot senior in the village of Oudorp on the edge of Alkmaar north of Amsterdam.
Today the company, still based in Alkmaar, runs a crane fleet that includes All Terrains, spider cranes and self-erecting mobile tower cranes, topped by a 750 tonner. It operates from 10 locations with 450 employees spread over seven operating companies.
Spierings has already delivered more than 100 eLift cranes since the concept was launched in 2019, spurred on by tax breaks in a growing number of countries.
