Sarens orders 18 Demag ATs
By Alex Dahm27 February 2017
International heavy lift and transport specialist Sarens has ordered 18 new Demag all terrain cranes from Terex Cranes.
The order comprises eight 100 tonne capacity AC 100-4Ls, three 130 tonne AC 130-5s and seven AC 220-5 models. Out of the 1,500 units in the Belgium-based company’s fleet, around 500 are Terex and Demag cranes.
Commenting on the deal, Ludo Sarens, Sarens president, said, “We already have a number of new Demag all terrain cranes in our fleet. So, from a standardisation point of view, this was for us a logical choice. Besides the operational cost-efficiency of these cranes, we are convinced that these new all terrain cranes provide a good mix of manoeuvrability, boom length, and capacity. Furthermore, the worldwide availability of spare parts is a big advantage for our Group. Overall, the combination of these factors convinced us to place this significant order.”
Steve Filipov, Terex Cranes president, said, “Sarens has been an outstanding customer and valued partner for product development for several decades. They have been involved with new product development on projects like the Boom Booster kit for the CC 8800-1 crawler crane. We are proud to serve them and have them working alongside our dedicated team.”
