Mexico's national oil company, PetrĂ³leos Mexicanos (PEMEX), has ordered 80 Hiab loader cranes from manufacturer Cargotec.

Order value is close to US$ 5 million, according to the European manufacturer. Applications for the truck mounted hydraulic cranes will include a range of maintenance and support duties nationwide.

"The longstanding relationship between PEMEX and Cargotec goes back more than 20 years, and these latest 80 Hiab loader cranes join an existing fleet in excess of 500 Hiab cranes. The cranes were selected because of the quality of the Hiab equipment and the levels of service on offer from Cargotec," said Rafael Llamas, Cargotec Mexico managing director.

Most of the Hiab cranes in the PEMEX fleet are XS series truck mounted loader cranes. The latest order includes 19 XS 144 B-3, eight Hiab 175-5, and 18 Hiab XS 211 EP-3 models in the mid-capacity range. From the high capacity range there are five XS 377 EP-5, four XS 422 EP-4 and 26 XS 477 E-6 models. Capacities range from 131 kN-metres for the smallest to 390 kN-metres for the XS 477E-6, which has an outreach of more than 21 m.
