Comansa China to launch first luffing-jib crane
Chinese subsidiary of Spain’s Linden Comansa prepares to deliver its first line of luffing-jib tower cranes
Comansa Construction Machinery (CM), a former JV but now wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary of Spain’s Linden Comansa, is set to reveal its first ever luffing-jib tower crane at Bauma China in Shanghai this month.
To date, the company’s production had been focused exclusively on flat-top tower cranes. Its current range is formed by thirteen models with maximum load capacities from 6t to 25t, divided into three series – all of them without pendant lines.
It was expected that Comansa CM would head the show with a model from its CM1600 series of flat-top tower cranes, launched last September. However, the prospect of this new Chinese-made luffing jib line from a respected European brand, could be even more interesting for Middle East markets.
While the company has not yet disclosed any technical details about the cranes, Comansa CM did reveal that this new model will be the first of a series of luffing-jib tower cranes called the CML Series.
Comansa CM was initially established in 2006 as a JV called Comansa JIE, and is based in Hangzhou, China. It rebranded in March 2015 as Comansa CM after the amicable exit of its Chinese stakeholder, leaving Linden Comansa group as sole owner.
The company is a large scale high-tech enterprise with registered capital of $10.25m, and a five-hectare facility. Its R&D department independently developed the CM2100 and CM1000 series of flat-top cranes, and all its parts are global interchangeable with Linden Comansa tower cranes.
