Autokran launches 25 tonner
By Euan Youdale25 June 2008
Russia-based Autokran, a subsidiary of Ivanovskaya Marka, launched its 25 tonne capacity KC-54712 truck crane at Moscow's CTT show in June.
The crane has a four section boom and the same workability as a 32 tonne model, said the company, adding that the model is the first crane in Russia to have a hydraulically elevating cab.
As well as being Russia's biggest supplier of truck cranes, Ivanovskaya Marka also supplies a range of models to the Russian Army.
Its sister company Giazprom Kran, based near Volgograd, manufactures 32 and 50 tonne truck cranes, about 350 of which will exit the production line this year.
Volinkin Alexander, Ivanovskaya Marka marketing director, says the company, which also produces a 100 tonne capacity all terrain, is developing its technological capabilities. "All 100 tonne plus capacity cranes are imported to Russia because we do not have the technology here. We are starting to buy the technology. To construct such mobile cranes you have to have partnerships with those that develop higher capacity cranes. It's a step-by-step process."
