Regional first for Asiagroup with 1,000 tonne Terex
By Laura Hatton20 November 2013
Lifting and heavy haulage service provider Asiagroup Leasing, based in Singapore, has taken delivery of the first unit of the 1,200 tonne capacity class Terex AC 1000 telescopic wheeled mobile crane in Asia. A launch event to mark the occasion will be held on 12 December.
The all terrain crane was delivered with the 50 metre and 100 m boom options. It was chosen for its ability to work in small areas and on narrow roads, a company spokesperson said. Applications will include high rise construction projects.
The AC 1000 joins a fleet of all terrains and rough terrains ranging from 80 tonnes capacity to the new range-topper; crawlers ranging from 50 tonnes to 650 tonnes; and 60 axles of Goldhofer multi-axle modular trailers for specialized oversize and-or overweight loads.
Typical work for the fleet of cranes includes carrying out heavy lifts in oil refineries, construction and marine industries.
