The people at NBTC are thoroughly familiar with the qualities of Tadano cranes: “We not only have numerous Tadano all terrain cranes in our fleet, but also three lattice boom crawler cranes, two CC 38.650-1 and a CC 24.400-1, that have demonstrated their incredible reliability and powerful performance characteristics time and time again for years now.
NBTC has now ordered a Tadano CC 88.1600-1 crawler crane with its maximum capacity of 1600 t – a significant upgrade for the fleet with the crane’s enormous load moment of close to 27,500 tonne-meters,” reports KGA Group Chairman K. G. Abraham. This performance level was one of the many reasons why his company decided on the Tadano CC 88.1600-1 in order to take care of an upcoming large-scale project, meaning that extremely demanding work is already awaiting the crane and its debut.
KGA / NBTC Group will be using CC 88.1600-1 for their upcoming projects in Kuwait. In addition, the company will be using the versatile large crane for all types of infrastructure and oil projects throughout the entire Middle East, for in-house projects as well as for external clients. Moreover, with the crane, the NBTC Equipment Division expands its equipment leasing offer for the Middle East.
And even though the CC 88.1600-1 is not KGA / NBTC’s first Tadano crane, the purchase still marks a first: It is the first brand new Tadano to join the company’s fleet. NBTC owns more than 4000 vehicles and construction equipment units, including 200 cranes and 46 multi-axle liners, which put the group in a perfect position to cover the requirements of the oil and gas sector. The CC 88.1600-1 is scheduled to be delivered to KGA Group in the second quarter of 2023.
