Grove cranes delivered

May 2017

Manitowoc, a premier provider of crawler, tower and mobile cranes, said it has successfully delivered two Grove all-terrain cranes to Egypt-based Suez Shipyard Company.

The new units – Grove GMK5130-2 and a GMK4080-1 – were supplied through Orascom Trading, the Manitowoc dealer for Egypt. These new additions mean the facility now has seven mobile cranes, with the latest deliveries being the company’s first Manitowoc-made units.

The two new cranes will help enhance the company’s in-house fleet and reduce its reliance on rental cranes, said  Essam Dabash, chairman of Suez Shipyard.

Suez Shipyard Company, he said, will use the GMK5130-2 around its floating dock for general maintenance duties. The 130-tonne capacity crane is a successor to the popular GMK5130-1 and is powered by an eight-cylinder, turbo-charged Mercedes-Benz OM 502 LA engine.

 The company will use the flexible GMK4080-1 to support general maintenance duties and lifting tasks around the yard’s various workshops.
