The equipment will be delivered in sequence until February 2009. The value of the order was not disclosed.

Captain Chatchawan Ghettalae, general manager, TIPS, said the new equipment “will definitely sustain our highest degree of customer service as we continue to provide high reliability and gear up for quicker and more efficient services for our clients.”

The units will be equipped with load-sensing hydraulics which provide ‘power-on-demand’ for the required weight, which is measured automatically. They also feature Konecranes’ Eco-Drive system, which calculates the fuel efficiency of each machine.
