Kobelco has handed over the first two units of its new 300 tonne CKS3000 lattice boom crawler crane to Indonesian contractor Guna Teguh Abadi (GTA) Construction.
The CKS3000 was announced at the end of last year and the first is due for delivery in the middle of March 2018, which will go to work in Indonesia in April.
The crane has a maximum capacity of 300 tonnes for the standard crane and 350 metric tonnes with an SHL specification. The CKS3000 is the Standard model for the rest of the world with the CKE3000G primarily a European model and the CK3300G-2 for North America.
The handover ceremony took place in Japan at the Kobelco factory last week. GTA Construction is expanding its crawler fleet with the addition of two CKS3000s.
President of GTA Kaoru Hirota said: “I am very proud to be here today to participate in this ceremony of the CKS3000 which I have been involved from the development stage to offer my opinions and proposals. Also I am very grateful that this is the first unit to go abroad.”
Kobelco executive officer Shinsuke Izumi added: “The CKS3000 is the largest model in Kobelco’s multi-purpose crawler crane line up while also offering large-sized model features as well. The business relationship between GTA Construction and Kobelco has been growing over the past 20 years and we look forward to a continuing business relationship.”
