Major Siemens deal for Cargotec

01 April 2011

Cargotec has entered into a long-term agreement with Siemens Wind Power A/S to supply custom-made Hiab articulated loader cranes for service and maintenance of its wind turbines.

The first Hiab service cranes for 3.6 MW wind turbines have already been delivered from Cargotec's assembly unit in Stargard Szczecinski, Poland. The order so far is for more than 100 units and the development of cranes for other turbine sizes is underway. The order is expected to reach up to 1,000 units per year, according to Cargotec.

The cranes are designed for quick and safe operation in the tight space of the wind turbine nacelle.

"Cargotec's closeness to the markets, as well as flexibility and ability to deliver reliable and safe solutions in a short delivery time were also highly valued," said Kai Foecking, global commodity manager for service cranes at Siemens Wind Power A/S.
