Arden said the S6002B grab is the successor the S3002B, which is also used at the base

The operation was co-ordinated by Newimar, a construction company providing technical services in the base, and Finanzauto, a Caterpillar distributor in Spain, which delivered the Cat 374F L track excavator as a gripper.

The attachment has a perpendicular opening to the ground of more than 3 m (10 ft), a 2,200 l (484 gal) capacity, two rotational motors and three hydraulic cylinders.

The S6002B is the successor to the S3002B, which is also used at the base.
