Kuwait-based EPC contractor NBTC, part of the KGA Group, has ordered a 1,600 tonne capacity Tadano CC 88.1600-1 crawler crane. The company ordered the crane to in order to take care of an upcoming large-scale project.

It joins two CC 38.650-1s and a CC 24.400 1 already in NBTC’s fleet and marks a significant upgrade for the fleet with its load moment of close to 27,500 tonne-metres. 

It is the first brand new Tadano to join the company’s fleet. NBTC owns more than 4000 vehicles and construction equipment units, including 200 cranes and 46 multi axle liners, which put the group in a perfect position to cover the requirements of the oil and gas sector.

The CC 88.1600-1 is scheduled to be delivered to KGA Group in the second quarter of 2023.
