New Grove GMK4100L-2 All-Terrain Crane for Galfar Al Misnad
Leading Qatar construction company, Galfar Al Misnad, has ordered a pair of Grove GMK4100L-2 all-terrain cranes through local Manitowoc dealer Mannai Trading. Galfar Al Misnad has been using Grove cranes for over 18 years, with its fleet already featuring an array of all-terrain and rough-terrain cranes.
The first of the GMK4100L-2 cranes was handed over in March 2023 at Grove’s facility in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Anwar Sadath, head of the plant department at Galfar Al Misnad, and Kareem Ramadan, sales manager at Mannai Trading, both traveled to Wilhelmshaven to receive the new crane. After handover, the crane began its journey to Galfar Al Misnad’s newly-built plant and equipment workshop in Doha, Qatar, before deployment on its first job at Ras Laffan, assisting in the construction of a gas pipeline as part of the local North Field Expansion Project. The second GMK4100L-2 from the order will also be sent to the same project once it reaches Qatar.
The GMK4100L-2 all-terrain crane is a four-axle, 100 t capacity crane that delivers both compact size and power. It has a width of only 2.55 m and MEGATRAK® suspension, allowing it to maneuver well into and out of position on jobsites. It also boasts the best load charts in its class, capable of carrying 6.8 t of counterweight in its taxi configuration, with overall vehicle weight at 12 t per axle. The crane is designed for efficiency, with low fuel consumption and the capability to run entirely on HVO fuel. A 60 m main boom offers a 16.0 m swingaway jib for further reach.
“We choose Grove cranes for their reliability and durability, as well as their strong after-sales service, excellent resale value, and operator-friendly designs,” said Anwar Sadath, head of the plant department at Galfar Al Misnad.
