November 25 - Hiap Tong Crane & Transport has supplied a four-axle Grove GMK4100 crane to China Railway to assist with the construction of the new Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) metro line in Singapore.

The four-axle crane was used on the new Thomson Line T209 at the Lentor Station project site. It was used primarily to lift components for a tunnel boring machine (TBM) on site.

The crane's compact size made it ideally suited to the job, said manufacturer Manitowoc, with its carrier length measuring just 10.75 m.

The 100-tonne capacity crane has a 52 m telescopic boom and a retro-fitted data logger - which is a requirement for cranes working in Singapore.
