Civil construction company Fulton Hogan has taken delivery of the first Tadano GTC-1200 telescopic crawler crane to be delivered to New Zealand.

Powered by a Cummins QSL9 diesel engine, the GTC-1200 crane has a 47 metre main boom and lifts 120 tonnes.

According to manufacturer Tadano Mantis, the model’s telematics capabilities were a key factor in Fulton Hogan’s purchase decision.

The GTC-1200’s telematics system works with the internet-based crane management system Hello-Net, which monitors the crane’s location and operating conditions. It can also provide round-the-clock remote assistance if and when needed.

Fulton Hogan’s GTC-1200 will be used on a remote construction site run by the company’s joint-venture project Waimea Community Dam. The NZD$105 million (USD$64.3 million) project is intended to solve the water shortages experienced by the Nelson District and Waimea Plains areas.
