Crane Norway Group Buy 9 Grove All-Terrain Cranes
Crane Norway Group recently purchased nine new Grove all-terrain cranes to add to its company fleet and to meet increased demand from customers for high capacity cranes. Along with five new Grove GMK5250XL-1 models, Crane Norway Group has also taken delivery of two GMK6300L-1, one GMK5150L and one GMK3060L. UN Mobilkraner, Manitowoc’s dealer in Norway, finalized the sale in October 2019.
The nine Grove cranes have been shipped from Manitowoc’s plant in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, to Norway. The all-terrain cranes will be used for a variety of jobs – from small construction sites to the installation of wind farms and major oil and gas construction projects. The cranes will also be working offshore on oil platforms in the North Sea where they will help carry out maintenance and construction jobs.
“We already own 15 Grove cranes and were looking for new models with outstanding lifting capacities to add to our fleet,” said Trond Helge Skretting, COO at Crane Norway Group. “We purchased our first Grove crane in 1986 – a Grove TM760EN – and have added different GMK models to our fleet in recent years. We’ve always been extremely satisfied with the consistent performance and reliability of our Grove cranes, and so have our customers. That’s why we selected the Grove all-terrain cranes.”
The excellent service support provided in the region was another reason for Crane Norway Group to choose Grove over competitors.
“We know that if there’s ever an issue, the team at UN Mobilkraner and Manitowoc will be quick to help solve it and provide outstanding service,” Skretting said.
“We’re very pleased that nine of our versatile Grove GMKs are expanding Crane Norway Group’s all-terrain crane offering in the region and are looking forward to further strengthening our partnership,” said Erdogan Arslan, regional director for mobile cranes in Central Europe & Scandinavia.
“It’s exciting to do business with a company that offers extensive experience and is always ready to take on new projects to ensure customer satisfaction,” said Rune Dybvik, UN Mobilkraner sales manager for Norway.
