October 16 - Wagenborg's first compact crawler crane - a Palfinger PK 27002-SH model - should be operational by mid October, says the company.

Wagenborg explained that it developed the compact crane, which is especially suited for work in tight spaces inside and outside, in response to market demand.

The company added that it took into account the special requirements of its customers regarding capacity, dimensions and environmental requirements when developing the new model.

According to Wagenborg, the crane is eco-friendly due to its fully-electric propulsion and lack of harmful emissions. The Palfinger crane will execute its first job in Groningen.
