Venezuelan state-owned petroleum company Petroleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA) has ordered 76 flat top tower cranes from Terex Cranes.

One of the biggest orders of cranes for Latin America, it is divided between two models: CTT 161A-6TS and 38 CTT 91-5 TS12. They are designed for use in confined areas, near airports or in conjunction with other flat top cranes. CTT flat top tower cranes are suited to heavy lifting and placement duties, the manufacturer said. All 76 units will be manufactured in the city of Fontanafredda, Italy, and will be delivered through 2012.

PDVSA plans to use the cranes for a housing project that involves building 50,000 residencies a year.
