09/03/2020 Liebherr Delivers two Duty Cycle Crawler Cranes to JV Salim Equipment Rental LLC and Daikyo Kenki Co.,Ltd
The local representatives of Liebherr-Werk Nenzing GmbH in Dubai handed over two 130-tonne duty cycle crawler cranes to Salim Equipment Rental LLC in Dubai.
Earlier this year Salim Equipment Rental LLC based in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai and their JV partner Daikyo Kenki Co., Ltd based in Tokyo, Japan decided to increase their fleet with two duty cycle crawler cranes to offer their services to the specialized foundation industry in the Middle East. Mr. Sajil Salim and Mr. Ryuichi Uchida, co-owners of the machines, investigated the market and decided that the Liebherr HS 8130.1 is the perfect equipment to start this new business segment. Not only the proven technology for operation in the harsh environment, but also the local support from Liebherr’s own service organizations in the Middle East convinced Mr. Salim. The cranes were delivered in July 2020 and handed over by Liebherr representatives, Mr. Knut Brandenburg and Mr. Samir Hussein. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, Mr. Ryuichi Uchida was not able to attend the fantastic handover ceremony in Dubai.
Equipped with the latest Liebherr technology, including the automated freefall system and the unique Liebherr duty cycle features, the cranes are perfectly configured for the Middle East. Both cranes have already been assigned to a jobsite in the United Arab Emirates where they will be working for the next few months.
