Sinotrans-Sarens adds capacity in China

Sarens is relocating one of the largest cranes in its fleet - the 1,600-tonne capacity Terex CC8800-1 crawler crane - to China as part of its Sinotrans-Sarens joint venture (SSJV).

The crane, along with a 1,250 tonne capacity CC6800, also from Sarens’ fleet, is scheduled to arrive in China in late September. Together with an extensive fleet of SPMTs, the cranes will be positioned to serve a variety of clients in China, from module yards and oil and gas projects to offshore wind farm operations, said Sarens.

“The growth of module yards, petrochemicals industry, offshore wind industry, and other construction projects in China create opportunities for the introduction of the CC8800-1 to this market,” said SSJV.

Sarens and Sinotrans Heavy-lift Logistics Company entered a joint-venture partnership in June 2015 to offer Chinese customers heavy lifting and engineered transport services.
