November 18 - Havator Group has acquired 100 percent of heavylift handler and crane operator BinSell i Uppsala to strengthen its operations in the Stockholm area.

The Uppsala-based company has a turnover of around USD 11.5 million, employs 50 people and has 22 cranes offering 23 to 300 tonnes lifting capacity.

The total number of sections in this project is approximately 20,000. This project builds on Havator and BinSell's previous 
experience of collaboration in arena projects.
