TREX delivers the first and largest mobile crane in Ecuador to CNA
August 4, 2022 By Don Horne
In a significant milestone for the Ecuadorian market, TREX introduced the first and largest crawler crane in the country to Consorcio Noroccidental Atlas (CNA), a joint venture between Transportes Noroccidental and Grúas Atlas.
This crane, the Tadano CC 2800-1 NT (Narrow Track) model, presents a lifting range of up to 175 metres in its maximum configuration. The unit will be used especially in the construction of wind energy and other renewable energy projects in Ecuador, contributing to their efficiency.
“This powerful equipment will engage in projects that promote the development of Ecuador and create local jobs– from CNA, we are committed to support the growth of our country. With the addition of the CC 2800-1 NT, CNA has now the most significant fleet of specialized transport and lifting equipment to make possible key projects nationwide”, says Edgar Andrade, General Director of CNA.
Gonzalo Salazar, TREX country manager in Ecuador and Colombia, says that “this type of machinery will complement the specialized equipment of CNA, and it will be installed and operated by specialized Ecuadorian personnel. As a Ferreycorp company, we are proud to affirm that this crane will add value to our customer’s operations and their contribution to the country.”
The lifting capacity of this machinery is superior to that of any other type of mobile crane in Ecuador, and it maintains excellent maneuverability even with heavy loads. Despite their size, Tadano crawler cranes are easy to transport and, once on site, set up quickly. Therefore, this model allows to improve the planning in civil works of tracks between platforms, optimizing movement times of the crane in them and during the assembly of the towers. Furthermore, being a completely new crane, it ensures maximum operational performance and safety during critical lifts.
The model acquired by the company –which is characterized by a Narrow Track– makes it possible to improve planning in civil works of tracks between platforms, reducing crane movement times on them and during the assembly of the towers, and optimizing civil works costs.
