Lauer Engineerings’ Grove RT765E-2 rough terrain crane

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-based Lauer Engineering used a Grove RT765E-2 rough terrain crane to help build part of Rio de Janeiro’s underground railway.

The subway line number four line connects Ipanema and Barra da Tijuca. Work for the rough terrain included unloading construction materials, lowering glass, steel components, tools and train tracks to the underground subway level. The crane was also used to remove dirt and debris from the subterranean operations.

The 16 km-long railway will have six stations and the capacity to transport 300,000 passengers a day.

Fernando Vianna Lauer, owner of Lauer Machinery and Engineering, said, “We’ve been able to show contractors how versatile a Grove RT765E-2 can be — the applications are endless. We at Lauer strongly believe that investing in Manitowoc cranes is the ideal choice. It certainly pays off in the long run, when you consider maintenance, services and most importantly, performance.”
