By Christian Shelton23 October 2017
Kuwait-based Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Company (JTC) has bought a new nine-axle, 700-tonne capacity class, Demag AC 700-9 all terrain crane from Terex Cranes. Added to the five smaller Demag cranes the company bought earlier in 2017, this brings its total fleet number of Demag and Terex cranes to over 25.
JTC is a specialist in parts management, contract logistics, equipment leasing, and power rental. It operates primarily in the public and private sectors of the oil and gas and construction industries. The company’s new Demag AC 700-9 all terrain crane will be used on many of the its most challenging lifting projects, said the AT’s manufacturer Terex. Its main boom length of 60 metres and main boom extension length of 96 m will provide ample lift height and reach, while its compact chassis design makes transporting and positioning quick and easy, Terex added.
“We have been pleased with the productivity and quality of our Demag cranes which is why we chose the Demag AC 700-9 model this time around,” explained Adel Kohari, CEO of JTC. “Our work continues to grow, and to keep up with demand we need reliable and versatile equipment, which Demag equipment offers us. From product design, onboard innovative features and technology to reliability and the support we receive from the service team, it’s always a pleasure to do business with Terex Cranes.”
