Incana expands fleet with new Demag
By Hannah Sundermeyer21 September 2020
A new Demag AC 500-8 has found a place in the growing fleet of Société Réunionnaise de Transports Incana (S.R.T.I.), a crane and transportation service provider on the French island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar. Among 20 other units, AC 500-8 stands out as both the largest crane in the company’s fleet as well as the entire island.
The Incana team made sure the eight-axle AC -500 8 had the maximum level of equipment available, including a luffing jib, superlift system and the IC-1 Plus control system. The company will use the new crane for a wide range of projects, including erecting wind turbines, building large infrastructure projects, lifting distillation columns at sugar mills and work on the biggest roadbuilding project in Réunion: the new coastal highway.
It is not Incana’s first experience of Tadano Demag as the company also purchased a new Tadano ATF 60G-3 and an ATF 70G-4 at the end of 2019.
“I’ve known Thierry Incana [owner] for about 20 years now and really value his amiable way of interacting with people and doing things,” said Tadano Demag France business leader, Jean-Marie Grossmann. “And I know that the decision to purchase the AC 500-8 was not only a business decision stemming from the well-planned growth of Incana, but also a result of the fact that we’ve worked together in person within the context of a relationship marked by complete trust.”
