Terex Crane's team was able to provide assistance with commissioning and operation when the RT 90 crane was used in Saudi Arabia
A Terex TR 90 rough terrain crane has performed reliably and productively in tough operating conditions in Saudi Arabia.
The crane was used for lifting numerous components for drilling rigs, generators, and a power distribution and control centre at a site for Nabros in Abqaiq, in Saudi Arabia. The machine was provided by Saudi Arabia-based heavy equipment service provider Expertise Contracting Company.
The crane was transported to the work site in Abqaiq on a lowbed trailer, which took three hours to travel the 200km from Expertise Contracting Company’s yard. The machine’s versatility was another benefit as no additional transport vehicles were required. And once the RT 90 reached the work site, the crane operator needed just 10 minutes to get it ready to work. The crane completed most of the lifts solo, and only needed assistance when lifting a 60tonne steel container that housed the power distribution and control centre for the drilling zone. For this particular lift, a Terex RT 780 rough terrain crane was brought in to work with the RT 90 to complete the task as a tandem lift.
