Third Grove for German transport company
27 October 2023
German freight transport and logistics company GA Neeb has taken delivery of a 250 tonne capacity Grove GMK5250L-1, its third Grove all-terrain crane of 2023.
Earlier this year the company purchased a GMK6300L-1 and a GMK3060L-1.
All three deliveries were provided through German Grove dealer KranAgentur Werner.
“Our newest Grove crane is a perfect investment,” said Gustav-Armin Neeb, CEO at GA Neeb. “With its second hoist, it’s ideally equipped for erecting power lines, working on wind farms, or assembling precast concrete sections on construction sites.”
The crane has a 70 metre telescopic main boom with a 4 metre long adjustable jib integrated into its bi-fold swingaway jib. It offers load capacities up to 60 tonnes.
Wind farm work
“The GMK6300L-1 has many strengths: high load capacity, an 80 m long main boom, and low fuel consumption. We are primarily using the crane for wind farm work, where the components we handle are getting bigger and heavier,” Neeb said.
As well as the three new cranes, GA Neeb has five Grove cranes in its current fleet - a GMK4080L, GMK4100L-2, GMK5250XL-1, GMK6300L-1, and a GMK6400-1.
The family company is headquarted in Wuppertal, Germany. In 1991, Gustav-Armin Neeb took over the business from his father Gustav-Adolf Neeb. In 2000, it opened an office in Zaragoza, Spain.
