For the most recent film project, Prangl provided 100 work platforms and 16 mobile cranes in capacities 25-500 tonne . The cranes were used to assist with the film sets and to position the lighting. One of the 95 t telescopic cranes will feature in the film, the company said.
"No other Austrian crane company has managed such a feat. A very special honour and pleasure for us", confirmed Prangl's managing director Christian Prangl.
