Mammoet orders five Spierings cranes
By Katherine Weir26 February 2016
Mammoet Nederland has placed an order with Dutch crane manufacturer Spierings for five new mobile tower cranes. They will receive the newest Spierings model, the SK 597-AT4 with a 48 metre jib length.
Wouter van Noort, managing director for the Benelux, said, “The new SK 597-AT4 cranes are a welcome addition to our crane fleet. The 48 metre jib length, together with a compact vehicle length, is the perfect combination to many of our customers. The machines will be divided over plants in Assen, Geleen and Hoogvliet. During the construction crises we’ve slimmed down our mobile tower crane fleet. Lately however, we’re noticing an increasing demand for this type of crane. That’s why we’re investing in five new Spierings tower cranes.”
Koos Spierings, sales engineer for Spierings in the Benelux and UK, explained, “We have noticed a strong recovery for the market of mobile tower cranes, both in the Netherlands and abroad. We are very pleased with the order for five new SK 597-AT4 cranes. We will also be delivering Mammoet a new SK 1265-AT6 later this year. We’re proud that a prestigious company as Mammoet has chosen Spierings cranes.”
Spierings has already delivered its first eight machines of the new SK 597-AT4 and, over the last few months, said it has received more than 40 orders for this crane.
