All terrain crane donated by Tadano in aftermath of earthquake
By Alex Dahm12 April 2023
Crane manufacturer Tadano has donated an all terrain wheeled mobile crane to help with reconstruction work following the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake.
On 6 February 2023, the enormous earthquake hit near the border between southern Turkey and Syria. More than 50,000 people were killed.
“We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to those affected by the disaster and our appreciation to all those who are working hard for recovery and reconstruction,” the company said.
Three axle 50 tonner
Tadano donated a 50 tonne capacity ATF 50G-3 all terrain crane with 40 metre lifting height to the Turkish government. It will be used to help in the ongoing recovery and reconstruction efforts in the affected areas. The three axle model will be delivered via Istanbul-based Tadano distributor ENKA Pazarlama Ihracat Ithalat.
The ATF 50G-3 is designed to cope with the rough roads expected in the disaster-stricken area. It is a small and manoeuvrable crane, Tadano said, and “we believe that this crane will make a wide contribution to the ongoing restoration and reconstruction of the affected areas.”
Delivery of the crane to Turkey is scheduled on or around 24 April 2023.
