The new HSC crawler cranes in the Roar Wilhelmsen fleet are the 100 tonne capacity HSC SCX1000A-3 and the 275 tonne HSC SCX2800A-3. Both were put straight to work on arrival in Norway.
The 100 tonner was delivered in the first week of August 2020 and was put to work on the Vestfoldbanen double-track railway project south of Oslo. The SCX2800A-3 was delivered to Trondheim. Training was given there by Norwegian HSC dealer ANK Cranes and HCME NL. It was then put directly to work.
The SCX2800A-3 was ordered with 85 metre boom, 45.7 metre luffing jib and the luffing jib winch.
Commenting on his new purchase Hans Roar Wilhelmsen, COO, said, “This investment is a part of our expansion plan for crawler cranes. We have seen growth in the market in recent years and we are happy to welcome the two HSC Cranes to our rental fleet.”
Roar Wilhelmsen AS was established 60 years ago. It has operations in Oslo, Trondheim and Elverum. The fleet of all terrain, crawler and knuckle boom cranes ranges from 1 to 350 tonnes lifting capacity. There is also a transport business and a fleet of excavators.
ANK Cranes is a new company started in 2019. It is based in Rælingen, outside of Oslo.
