UK-based BPH Equipment has taken delivery of its sixth CKE 1350G lattice boom crawler crane from Kobelco Cranes Europe.

The new crane lifts 135 tonnes at 4.5 metres radius. It was delivered to BPH, part of Balfour Beatty, at the Barton-on-Humber headquarters. After commissioning it was hired by Balfour Beatty for the construction of a large ethane tank in Teeside called Project Zeppelin. The crane was initially mobilised to site with a 61 m boom and later had a 24 m fly jib added.

Philip Chippindale, BPH general manager, said, “All our CKE 1350s have been extremely busy. For the last 18 months we have had a couple working on the Mersey Gateway Project for the Merseylink consortium. The others are working on a variety of interesting projects across the UK.”
