Algerian bridge construction specialist SAPTA is using four Sennebogen cranes near Algiers
Sennebogen crawler and telescopic cranes are lifting heavy construction parts weighing up to 60 tonnes, the latest of which is a Sennebogen 6113 telescopic crawler crane with a capacity for 120 tonnes, a statement by the company said.
As a long-standing customer, SAPTA has trusted the reliable cranes from Sennebogen for many years. Previously, the company had held on to its traditional concept when it came to machinery and had purchased two 80 tonnes Sennebogen 2,200 crawler cranes. During the past two years, sales and service partner EURL SM Maintenance supplied the construction company with a 683 telescopic crane and lately a 120 tonne telescopic crawler crane of type 6113. All four machines have now been utilised simultaneously during a bridge building project.
During the construction phase, structural parts up to 40 metres long and weighing up to 60 tonnes needed to be lifted into place. Able to travel and move easily under load, the telescopic cranes proved their worth, the company said.
The Sennebogen 6113 has a maximum load capacity of 120 tonnes and a maximum reach of up to 40.2 metres. According to the company, its joystick control facilitates fast and easy telescoping even under load and the multi-cylinder system ensures that any boom position can be approached smoothly and without interruption.
