Terex send their TRTs to Southern Africa

Southern Africa crane hire company Concord Cranes Group have acquired two new Terex TRT 35 rough terrain cranes to aid their port work operations.

Purchased through Terex distributor Goscor Access Solutions, the first 35-tonner was delivered to Walvis Bay in Namibia where its “manoeuvrability” and “compact size” ensured its efficacy in working at the local port jetties according to Francois Smith, director of operations at Concord Cranes.

“The Terex TRT 35 was selected for its versatile features, which is needed to access confined spaces on port jetties,” Smith said. “The crane is used extensively in the food industry, offloading fish from fishing vessels to the processing plant, which requires accuracy, high safety standards, speed, and reliability—which the Terex TRT 35 provides with ease.”

Featuring a boom length of 30.1 metres, additional jib extension of eight metres and the aforementioned 35-tonne lifting capacity, the TRT 35’s boom is also four-section, providing operators with flexible lifting performance in tandem with its four steering options.

Additionally, it also features the Terex Operating System (TEOS): a digital control system designed to improve safety, usability, efficiency of dimensions, operation, and information flow.

Goscor Access Solutions, who provided Concord Cranes with their two new 35-tonne rough terrain cranes, are one of a growing number of distributors to join forces with the Terex Rough Terrain global network.

Announcing the commencement of their partnership in Munich last year, Terex Rough Terrain Sales Manager Guillaume Bertrand highlighted the importance of Goscor Access Solutions to the regional market in Southern Africa, stating the company was “already proving themselves” as an optimal partner.

“The region is a critical market for us and not only do Goscor Access Solutions have a very good knowledge of the lifting industry, but they also have a huge footprint in the countries they are responsible for with a strong focus on service,” he said.

“We are delighted to see our cranes performing across Namibia with a company as prestigious as Concord Cranes Group and look forward to continued growth in this market.”
