Taller than the Statue of Liberty

In June 2011 Mammoet introduced their new generation PTC super heavy-lift cranes, of which three have been built. In 2011, a PTC set a world record when lifting 3,500 tonnes. And this lifting capacity is just one of the strengths of these cranes. Their versatility is just as important. As well as being able to lift loads up and over tall buildings, the long reach means the cranes don’t need to be moved once they have been constructed on site. The cranes rest on a “footprint”. Think of a circular toy railway track, but then 45 or 55 metres in circumference, which means that the crane can turn 365 degrees - in just 15 minutes - for even greater access to the site they are working on.
