Erwitte, Germany-based crane rental firm Franz-Bracht Kran-Vermietung (Bracht) has used its new 200 tonne capacity Tadano GTC-2000 for its first assignment in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The crane was used to lift 15 tonne concrete components into place.

When the crane first arrived at the site it was set up, with Tadano first-assignment support, by a service technician in two hours with 60 tonnes of counterweight – enough to lift the precast concrete components with a boom length of 41.1 metres at a radius of 20 metres.

The crane carried out 20 lifts per day, including moving twice, for three months.
