Six Terex tower cranes at Belgian work site
Date 11 October 2018
On behalf of the construction company Interbuild N.V., Dutch crane rental company Stravers Torenkranen B.V. used six Terex flat top tower cranes at a work site in the Belgian town Turnout to erect multiple apartment buildings and a Museum. The Terex crane squad constisted of two CTT 332-16 units and four CTT 231-10 units, of which the tallest was set up with a free-standing height of 92 metres.
“There are two reasons why we decided to only use Terex for this work site: firstly, they had the required lifting capacities. Secondly, it was remarkably easy to position them in an overlapping arrangement on the available space,” explains Owner and General Manager Berry Stravers. Moreover, it was not particulary difficult for the company to “recruit”suitable Terex tower crane for the project – after all, of the total 130 cranes that make up the Stravers fleet, 120 are terex tower cranes.
The Stravers location in the Dutch town of Veghel used 72 trucks to bring the six chosen cranes to Turnhout, where erecting them took a four-person team a full day each. The cranes will remain there for about a year and a half and will be used to lift prefab components, other building materials, and an endless amount of conrete buckets.
