Announced via a press release on May 23, Grove said the order contained a mixture of four, five, and six-axle Grove all terrain cranes with the order set to be completed later this year.

“It’s great to see such a loyal customer expanding its partnership with us,” said Aaron Ravenscroft, president and CEO of Manitowoc. “Our product reliability and top-notch customer support have crafted this opportunity, and we look forward to seeing the new Grove cranes at work.”

According to the press release, Robert Baran Crane Group Petrolift is expanding its crane fleet to cope with demand for more varied lifting support. The company already owns more than 40 300-tonne all terrain cranes from Grove and was the first business in Poland to own an extensive fleet of Grove GMK6300L-1 cranes.

“We love the GMK6300L-1,” said Robert Baran, founder and CEO of Robert Baran Crane Group Petrolift. “It’s extremely reliable and powerful, and a proven best-in-class machine. Now we’re at a stage where we need to expand our offerings; it was natural to turn to Grove and we are looking forward to seeing the advantages and versatility of our new models paying off on jobsites across Europe.”


The first cranes in the latest order have already been delivered and set to work on several projects, including installing wind turbines and working on petrochemical and chemical plants. According to Manitowoc, the Grove all-terrains are powerful workhorses, suitable for a variety of applications, thanks to their unique Megaform boom design, high capacities, compact dimensions, and excellent manoeuvrability.

“We’re happy to extend our partnership with Petrolift,” said Thomas Steuer, vice president of sales for Central Europe and the Benelux region at Manitowoc. “The company has an excellent reputation and is a great customer for us. We’ve built a strong relationship over the years and it’s exciting to help the company expand its Grove line-up.”
