August 22 - Manaus, Brazil based crane and heavy machinery rental firm Entec Longhi & Cia has taken delivery of a new Terex AC 500-2 all-terrain crane (ATC).
The 500-tonne capacity crane will be deployed on current and future projects with Brazilian energy company Petrobas.
The crane was transported on a ship from Antwerp, Belgium directly to Manaus. Upon arrival at the Brazilian gateway, Entec used its Terex AC 350/6 and AC200-1 ATC in tandem to discharge the 96-tonne new arrival.
Reinaldo Longhi, commercial director of Entec, said: "We are very happy with our Terex all terrain cranes, so when we wanted to expand our fleet both in number and capacity, the decision came naturally. Our new Terex AC 500-2 will allow Entec to maintain its leadership in the Amazon region."
