Norwegian transport and lifting services provider Crane Norway has expanded its fleet with the purchase of nine new Grove all terrain cranes from manufacturer Manitowoc. The order comprises five GMK5250XL-1s, two GMK6300L-1s, one GMK5150L and one GMK3060L model.

The nine Grove cranes have been shipped from Manitowoc’s plant in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, to Norway. The all terrain cranes will be used for a range of jobs – from small construction sites to the installation of wind farms and major oil and gas construction projects. The cranes will also be working offshore on oil platforms in the North Sea where they will help carry out maintenance and construction.

“We already own 15 Grove cranes and were looking for new models with outstanding lifting capacities to add to our fleet,” said Trond Helge Skretting, COO at Crane Norway Group. “We purchased our first Grove crane in 1986 – a Grove TM760EN – and have added different GMK models to our fleet in recent years.”
