The 400 tonne capacity GMK6400-1 is the first Grove purchase for the company and will be used to support the many wind farm projects Sicily has.

The six-axle crane has good reach and lifting power and can be used extensively in servicing wind farms, the company said. The crane comes with a 60 metre boom and maximum jib height of 136 metres.

“We were really impressed with the GMK6400-1, and especially the upgrades it offers over the previous GMK6400 including the crane control system,” said Giuseppe Mandalà, general manager, Mandalà Noleggi.

“Having these additional features means increased capacities on the main boom, and it’s a crane that is fast and easy to set up, so we can get through more work in a day.”
