Oss, September 2023 – Bob Bruijsten, director and owner of family-owned Kuiphuis from Oldenzaal is investing in two new SK2400-R eLift crawler cranes from Spierings. The first new crane of this model will be delivered to Kuiphuis in the first half of 2024. With this, Kuiphuis is once again stepping up the sustainability of there crane fleet.
Within Kuiphuis, five eLift cranes have already been added to the fleet in recent years to meet the demand for electric construction equipment. Bob Bruijsten: “We may be moving faster than construction companies at the moment, we find that construction companies are still getting used to the fact that with electric cranes of this size we can already run on construction with a 16 amp connection.”
In addition, Bob Bruijsten sees it as everyone’s responsibility to make the maximum effort to save emissions.” If we already look at how many hours we run emission-free every week, that just makes me proud. In addition, both new machines are much needed, we have requests from all over the country for the eLift system, specifically for the SK2400-R capabilities.”
Kuiphuis has a fleet of more than 40 Spierings cranes including several crawler cranes. Kuiphuis notices that the demand for these types of cranes is increasing. The loads are getting heavier and more and more elements are supplied prefabricated, which as a crane rental company you have to respond to.
Mathieu Braamhaar, Sales Engineer at Spierings Mobile Cranes BV; “Kuiphuis is a wonderful family business which invests in the future, the fact that they are now the first to operate with our new SK2400-R eLift is a great milestone. The SK2400-R eLift is a further development of the SK2400-R which we have been producing for some time. However, the new crane has multiple configurations for lifting. With one transport you already have a lifting capacity of 2800 kg at 42 meters. This has made the crane multifunctional.”
About SK2400-R eLiftThe SK2400-R eLift is the strongest mobile tower crane ever built. This powerful crane is built on a crawler undercarriage, so it can be quickly erected and moved around the construction site.The crane has a jib length of 42 meters or 50 meters, lifting up to 5.5 tons or 2.5 tons at the tip. In addition, the crane hoists a maximum of 18 tons at 14.6 meters radius.

Osser Kranbauer entscheidet sich für vollelektrisches Heben
Spierings Mobile Cranes stellt konventionelle Diesel-Krane ein
Spierings Mobile Cranes stellt die Fertigung und den Verkauf konventioneller Diesel-Krane ein. Der Osser Kranhersteller fertigt künftig nur noch nachhaltige Hybridmodelle. Spierings ist damit der erste Betrieb weltweit, der nur noch Krane baut, die vollelektrisch heben. Darüber hinaus kann das neueste Modell, der SK487-AT3 City Boy, auch vollelektrisch betrieben werden, was die lokalen Emissionen vollständig reduzieren kann. Dieser Elektrokran ermöglicht einen emissionsfreien Betrieb in jeder Stadt.
Der Grund für diese Entscheidung ist das starke Wachstum im Bereich hybrider Krane und das Bestreben, das Maximum für Mensch, Natur und Umwelt zu leisten. „Die Elektrifizierung der Baustelle kann nur erfolgreich sein, wenn der Hersteller vorangeht“, so CEO Koos Spierings. „Unsere inländischen Kunden haben bereits erkannt, dass das die Zukunft ist. Unsere ausländischen Kunden müssen sich erst noch ein bisschen daran gewöhnen, aber wir sind davon überzeugt, dass auch sie die Vorteile dieser Entscheidung schnell erkennen. Denn schlussendlich werden konventionelle Dieselkrane aussterben.“
Lithium-Ionen-Akkus
Die Hybrid-Turmkrane von Spierings Mobile Cranes sind mit Lithium-Ionen-Batterien ausgestattet. Dadurch sind sie für den emissionsfreien Einsatz auf jeder Baustelle geeignet. Der Kran ist für Notfälle mit einem kleinen 3-Zylinder-Dieselmotor der Stufe 5 ausgestattet. Spierings Mobile Cranes hat bis heute bereits über 150 elektrische Krane, besser bekannt als eLift, ausgeliefert.
Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit
Spierings sagt, dass die Vorteile eines emissionsfreien Betriebs überdeutlich sind. „Kein CO2-Ausstoß, keine Lärmbelästigung, aber uneingeschränkte Leistung. Und schaltet der Kranführer dann doch einmal den Dieselmotor dazu? Dann ist der Kraftstoffverbrauch immer noch extrem gering. Hiermit machen wir deutlich, dass gutes Unternehmertum, Innovation und Nachhaltigkeit Hand in Hand gehen.“
Spierings Mobile Cranes entwickelt die Hybridtechnik weiter. So können die heutigen Krane dank eines 16-Ampere-Baustromanschlusses emissionsfrei eingesetzt werden. Darüber hinaus ist Spierings der einzige Produzent, der Krane ab Werk mit einem Lithium-Ionen-Batteriepaket mit einer Leistung von 33 kWh anbietet.
