Eurogruas buys 84m Wumag

15 April 2008

Major Spanish crane rental company Eurogruas took delivery of its first big truck mounted aerial platform, an 84 m working height Wumag Elevant WT 850, on 25 January. The platform will be used mainly for the construction and maintenance of wind turbines in Spain and Portugal.

The 84 m platform, mounted on a 48 t MAN TGA 41480 carrier, is by far the biggest aerial platform in the company's fleet. Eurogruas, which is based in Seville, rents 385 mobile cranes, 215 tower cranes and 750 forklifts, telehandlers and aerial platforms, the largest of which is a 44 m boom.

Pictured at the official handover, from left to right, are: Rolf Kulawik (managing director, Elevant Service), Manuel Mateo Guisado (market director, Eurpogruas), Pedro Lorenzo Garcia (wind energy division manager, Eurogruas), Stephan Kulawik (sales director, Wumag Elevant) and Angel Raya (operator, Eurogruas).
