Al Jaber Heavy Lift has announced its ownership of the world's highest capacity mobile crane with a 3200Te lifting capacity.

The Terex® Demag CC8800-1 TWIN is a modular crane system based on the multiple utilization modules of the CC8800-1.

The name TWIN refers to the double boom which, according to the company has the potential to increase the lifting capacity of the CC8800-1 by a factor of almost four in certain configurations whilst retaining the ability to pick and carry loads at the highest capacities.

Maximum load movement of the crane is said to be 44,000 tonne metres, and has a 117m boom length.

The luffing fly jib and the superlift mast are also doubled up and connected by cross-bracings and all winches and hook blocks are provided in pairs. The new crane is compact for its capacity and is designed to make dismantling, movement between projects and re-assembly quick and easy.

"We are pleased to announce our ownership of the world's leading crawler crane that is designed to suit a wide range of applications including the petrochemical industry, power station, construction and major infrastructure projects," said Alex Mullins, managing director, Al Jaber Heavy Lift.

Al Jaber Heavy Lift & Transport has about 300 cranes in its fleet including crawlers, all terrains, rough terrains and truck mounted lattice boom cranes. The new crane joins an existing fleet of large Demag lattice boom crawlers.

The crane, produced by the German based manufacturer and funded by Al Jaber's investment, has taken eight years to develop and will be available for heavy lift requirements anywhere in the world.

Terex-Demag has been designing and manufacturing mobile cranes for more than 50 years; its product portfolio currently comprises 21 telescopic crane models and ten lattice boom type models.
