Scandinavian crane service provider Nordic Crane has taken delivery of a new Tadano CC 38.650-1 lattice boom crawler crane.
Tadano’s crawler instantly proved itself up to the task after it was immediately put to work on a roadbuilding project, lifting two 54-metre long, seven-metre wide 135-tonne road bridges. Managing Director at Nordic Crane Morton Heli-Hansen said the crane “never faltered” during the job at hand, facilitating a lift that was executed “exactly as planned”.
“We configured the CC 38.650-1 with a 60-meter SSL_2 and 39.5-meter Superlift mast configuration for this assignment,” he said.
“The counterweight was 165 plus 50 tonnes, and there were 250 tonnes on the Superlift tray,” he continued. “This enabled the CC 38.650-1 to easily lift the loads with a gross weight of 147 tonnes at a radius of 42 meters and then slew them into place and accurately set them down at their intended position.”
With a maximum lifting capacity of 650 tonnes at a height of 12 metres, Tadano’s CC 38.650-1 features a maximum load moment of 9,152 torque-metres and a boom length ranging from 24 metres through to 171 metres.
Heli-Hansen labelled the crane as flexible, highlighting its ability to perform in “industrial, infrastructure, or wind turbine projects”.
“The CC 38.650-1 is an extremely well-engineered and reliable crane that’s perfect for a huge range of jobs thanks to its incredible power and versatility,” he said.
Boasting a fleet of 300 all-terrain and crawler cranes with lifting capacities ranging from 10 to 750 tonnes, Nordic Crane’s work varies throughout infrastructure, industrial facilities, and oil production sites.
