The new 10-tonne crane has a 60-metre jib and a 37.2-metre high tower, with the jib luffed to 30 degrees above horizontal it offers a maximum tip height of 66 metres. It can operate on an AC power outlet with a supply as low as 11 amps while maintaining full operational power, thanks to its onboard lithium-ion battery pack that boosts the available mains power source as and when required. A small Stage V diesel can be used to support and recharge the battery pack when an AC outlet is not available.

The new crane takes the number of electric/hybrid cranes in the Kuiphuis fleet to 13, following the purchase of a three-axle Spierings SK487-AT3 City Boy last year and a fleet of full-electric Spierings crawler cranes, which it rents throughout Europe.

Kuiphuis purchased its first Spierings crane – a three-axle SK345-AT3 – in 1994 and now has 40 units in its fleet. At one time current owner Bob Bruijsten even worked for Spierings.
