First steel cut for Mammoet Focus 

The first steel has been cut for Mammoet’s Focus 30 crane – a heavy lifting solution for use in confined spaces such as plants and inner cities.

Approximately 1,000 tons (907.2 tonnes) of steel will be required for the construction of the crane. The first unit will be available in the second quarter of 2020.

“We are confident that the selected vendors will provide the high-quality components necessary in order to bring our Focus 30 to reality,” said Jacques Stoof, director of market development and innovation at Mammoet

Among others, equipment manufacturer Liebherr has been contracted to deliver the winch system, while Rometal, a vendor in the Rotterdam area, has been contracted for the fabrication and construction of the upper and under carriers.
