Kuwait-based rental company Integrated Logistics Company (ILC) has added 17 new Grove cranes to its equipment fleet.
The order includes ten Grove GMK4100L all terrains. The 100 tonne capacity GMK4100L has a 60 m boom and is on a four-axle carrier.
The cranes join a fleet of 500 cranes and will be used to work on oil and gas, petrochemical plants, steel structures, refineries, wind turbines and power construction projects, a spokesperson said.
Saleh Al-Huwaidi, ILC CEO, said, “Our Grove cranes are strong, reliable, and have exceptional resale value. We recently bought 17 new Groves, including 10 GMK4100L cranes last year, as well as three GMK5130-2 and four GMK6300L all terrain cranes in 2013, in order to keep up with demand for upcoming projects in the region. The four-axle model is compact in size and has a longer boom compared to other cranes of similar capacity.”
Waleed Raouf, Grove crane sales manager at Manitowoc Middle East, said, “ILC is a key player in the Kuwaiti market which is always striving to have the best equipment in its fleet to meet the differing array of jobs both in the State of Kuwait and to a lesser extent in both the Eastern Region of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.”
