Sarens launched its new super heavy-lift crane, the Sarens Giant Crane140 (SGC-140) during an inauguration event last week in Ghent, Belgium, where a number of journalists and key Sarens contacts attended the initiation of the largest crane owned by the organization.
The SGC-140 has a lifting capacity of 3,200 tons at a radius of 50 meters. The boom is 130 meters and a 99 meter jib can be attached.
The SGC-140 is one of the largest cranes in the world, joining the SGC family of cranes, a group of four cranes, namely: SGC-90, SGC-120, SGC-140, and SGC-250. Nicknamed 'Bigger Benny', the SGC-140 will be used to build an oil refinery in Kazakhstan, then go on to install equipment in the Caspian Sea.
Wim Sarens, CEO, and Carl Sarens, Director of Technical Solutions, Projects and Engineering, presented the new SGC-140 crane from a commercial and technical standpoint to the audience.
