“It made sense for us to add this crane to the fleet. We were really impressed with the long boom and also purchased the optional 21 m fly jib to give us even greater reach,” said Hiap Heng.

According to Manitowoc, Hiap Heng expects to use the crane for high-rise construction work as well as general infrastructure projects. The crane has already been deployed at a petrochemical plant on Jurong Island, Singapore, where it conducted maintenance during a week-long shutdown, said Manitowoc.
