UK based crane rental company Sech has confirmed its purchase of the first 300 tonne Kobelco CKE3000G crawler crane to be delivered in Europe.
The CKE3000G has three lifting modes, including Standard model with 300 tonnes at 5.5 metres radius, Heavy lift with 189.8 tonnes at 8.8 metres, and Super Heavy Lift mode with 350 tonnes at eight metres.
Launched in December 2017, the first two units were delivered to Indonesian contractor Guna Teguh Abadi (GTA) Construction in March 2018.
Sech has ordered its CKE3000G with standard main boom, 60 metre luffing jib, a 30 metre back mast and tray provides both Heavy Lift, and Super Heavy lift capabilities.
Sech managing director Matt Cox said: “The CKE3000G is an exceptional crane with great lifting capacities. We have been running a Kobelco CKE1100G machine in our rental fleet for nearly two years now and after careful evaluation we chose Kobelco’s new CKE3000G because of its design and operational simplicity, Kobelco’s proven reliability and excellent performance. Another plus for us, was that the new Kobelco CKE3000G also has duel winch operation, allowing for heavier loads to be lifted - for example into much deeper shafts with greater control and efficiency.”
Mark Evans of Kobelco Cranes Europe’ added: “We are pleased to have completed the sale of the first 300 tonne CKE3000G for Europe to Sech. This is the first Kobelco crane of this size that has been sold into this all important market and marks the first step in the next phase of Kobelco Cranes’ expansion of its product line-up for the region.”
