Kuwait's JTC takes delivery of 700-tonne lift crane

KUWAIT, October 22, 2017

Kuwait's Jassim Transport & Stevedoring Company (JTC) has expanded its fleet with the delivery of a nine-axle, 700-tonne lift capacity Demag AC 700-9 all terrain crane from Terex Cranes.
The crane has a main boom length of 60 m and main boom extension length of 96 m. Its compact chassis design makes transporting and positioning quick and easy, said a statement from Terex Cranes, part of Terex Corporation.
JTC operates a fleet comprising more than 25 Demag and Terex cranes. The company added five smaller Demag units to its fleet earlier this year to keep up with its growing workload in Kuwait and Qatar, it stated.
On the new crane, JTC chief executive Adel Kohari said: "We have been pleased with the productivity and quality of our Demag cranes, which is why we chose the Demag AC 700-9 model this time around."

An innovative and customer-focused organisation, JTC was founded in 1979 as an inland transportation company. The Kuwaiti brand is now associated with its core activities such as ports management, contract logistics, equipment leasing and power rental.
"Our work continues to grow, and to keep up with demand we need reliable and versatile equipment, which Demag equipment offers us," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
