October 20 - Jassim Transport & Stevedoring (JTC) has expanded its fleet with a new nine-axle, 700-tonne lift capacity, Demag AC 700-9 all terrain crane.

The crane has a main boom length of 60 m and main boom extension length of 96 m. Its compact chassis design makes transporting and positioning quick and easy, says JTC.

JTC operates a fleet comprising more than 25 Demag and Terex cranes. The company added five smaller Demag units to its fleet earlier this year to keep up with its growing workload in Kuwait and Qatar.

"We have been pleased with the productivity and quality of our Demag cranes, which is why we chose the Demag AC 700-9 model this time around," explained JTC ceo, Adel Kohari. "Our work continues to grow, and to keep up with demand we need reliable and versatile equipment, which Demag equipment offers us."
