This year’s JDL Expo was a very good edition. Mediaco has placed an order for three new Spierings cranes to expand their fleet of mobile tower cranes in France. Alexandre Vernazza – President of MEDIACO Group – was convinced by the eLift concept. The concept allows the crane to work emission-free, a market with an increasing demand.
Two SK597-AT4 eLift cranes will be delivered during the first half of 2022. These cranes offer a maximum reach of 48m and up to 58m hook height, as well as a capacity of 7 Tons at 14m.
In early 2023 an SK1265-AT6 eLift crane will be delivered. The SK1265-AT6 also known as “Mighty Tiny”, is the most powerful mobile tower crane on the market. With 60m of reach, which offers exceptional capacities of lifting of 10 Tons at 13.2m.
These three machines will be delivered with the eLift concept. This new innovation from Spierings makes it possible to use the crane in Zero-emission mode. Thanks to the “PowerPack® battery technology”, Spierings eLift cranes offer 100% lifting capacity with a simple grid connection of only 16AMP. They also work in Hybrid mode, thanks to a 3-cylinder 55Kw engine, Stage V, without Ad-Blue, and thus offering reduced fuel consumption.
“We have a important fleet of mobile tower cranes, with more than 40 units in France. I have been in contact with Spierings Mobile Cranes for several years, and I am seduced by the innovations it presents. This new zero-emission “eLift” lifting offer meets the ecologic engagement of the Mediaco group and also the needs of our customers who are increasingly attentive to CO2 reductions on their construction sites. The lifting capacities of these Spierings cranes are interesting and will complement our current lifting proposals ”affirms Mr. Alexandre Vernazza, president of the Mediaco Group.
