ILC adds Grove cranes to heavy-lifting fleet

May 2015

Integrated Logistics Company (ILC), the largest crane rental company in Kuwait, has bought 10 Grove GMK4100L cranes to serve the high demand for heavy-lifting cranes in the region.

ILC’s latest purchase expands the company’s expansive fleet of more than 500 cranes, including mobile cranes ranging from 25 tonnes to 1,200 tonnes and crawler cranes ranging from 50 tonnes to 1,600 tonnes capacity.

The 100-tonne-capacity Grove GMK4100L features a 60-m boom on a compact four-axle carrier that can travel on most highways without the need for special permits.

The market demand for crane capacities of up to 100 tonnes is high, said Saleh Al Huwaidi, CEO of ILC.

“They are strong, reliable, and have exceptional resale value. “Our Groves now include the 10 GMK4100L cranes as well as three GMK5130-2 and four GMK6300L all-terrain cranes bought earlier in order to keep up with demand for upcoming projects in the region.

“The four-axle model is compact in size and has a longer boom compared to other cranes of similar capacity,” he added.

The Grove cranes work on a variety of projects including oil and gas, fertiliser and petrochemical plants, steel structures, refineries, wind turbines and power construction projects. During each project, the cranes are in operation daily for up to 24 months.

The Grove GMK4100L is highly manoeuvrable and can reach almost any job site thanks to its Megatrak suspension system and all-wheel steer.

The cranes were delivered by Equipment Company, one of the leading distributors in Kuwait for construction and industrial machines.
