The Dunagep fleet currently comprises five Tadano Demag cranes: two AC 55-3, an AC 80-2, an AC 160-5, and an AC 500-2.

Troppert Ferenc, technical director at Dunagep, said that the crane rental company was particularly attracted to the 78 m-long main boom and the strength of the AC 220-5.

Ferenc added that the hydraulic main boom extension was another reason behind the investment. “It saves our teams a lot of time on the construction site and thus makes our work particularly cost-effective,” he said.

Other advantages of the crane, according to Ferenc, include the innovative IC-1 Plus control system and the ability to work with asymmetrical outrigger configuration.

Dunagep will use the AC 220-5 for moving machines during industrial installations, amongst other operations, including work at refineries.
