Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Co. K.S.C.C. (JTC) orders 6 new Demag all terrain cranes

ZWEIBRÜCKEN – March 29, 2018 – Kuwait’s Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Co. K.S.C.C. (JTC) has placed an order for 6 new Demag® all terrain cranes, including one AC 100-4 model, three AC 130-5 models and two AC 160-5 models. These new units, along with the six other Demag all terrain cranes that JTC purchased within the last two years, expand the company’s Terex and Demag crane fleet to more than 50 units.

“Our business continues to expand across Kuwait and Qatar,” says JTC CEO, Adel Kohari. And, given the success we’ve experienced with the Demag cranes we recently purchased, we decided to add several more mobile cranes. We believe this strategy will make our crews more productive because all of the various models share common features and operate in similar ways. The whole Demag all terrain crane line is well designed and built from small to large.”

Known for their maneuverability and compact chassis design, Demag all terrain cranes feature a single engine concept with an intelligent motor management system that disburses needed horsepower for lifting and travel functions, as well as all-axle steering with an independent rear axle steering and dynamic launch controls.

JTC’s new Demag AC 100-4 model has a 100 tonne (120 US ton) capacity classification, main boom length of 50 m (164 ft) and maximum system length of 77 m (226.9 ft). The 5-axle, 130 tonnes (140 US ton) AC-130-5 model’s main boom can extend up to 60 m (197 ft) and includes a maximum system length of 86.5 m (284 ft). The larger AC 160-5 mobile crane has a 160-tonne (180 US ton) capacity classification, main boom length of 68 m (223.1 ft) and a maximum system length of 95 m (311.7 ft).

Scheduled for delivery later this year, Kohari says his crews are looking forward to putting these new Demag all terrain cranes to work.
