First Demag AC 55-3 for Mammoet in Germany

Following the great results Mammoet has had with the Demag® AC 55-3 all terrain crane in the Netherlands, the company recently bought its first model of this crane to be used in Germany. “The main reason why we chose the Demag AC 55-3 is its outstanding lifting capacity. In addition, the AC 55-3 is an extraordinarily robust and reliable crane, as our Dutch colleagues have confirmed,” explains Vitor da Costa, part of Mammoet’s Fleet Maintenance staff, who picked up the Demag AC 55-3 in Zweibrücken together with crane operator Alexander Morasch. The crane was handed over by Terex Cranes Key Account Senior Sales Manager Uwe Schlicher.

With the new Demag AC 55-3, Mammoet is expanding its already extensive fleet of Terex and Demag cranes. “We have a large number of cranes from these two brands in every class, and every single project for which we’ve used them globally has been extremely successful, which is why we keep adding more,” Vitor da Costa reports. The new crane will be used at the BASF factory premises in Ludwigshafen.
