French civil engineering company Lepine TP has taken delivery of a 55 tonne Sennebogen 655 HD duty cycle crawler crane from distributor Sygmat.
The 655 HD crane has a maximum main boom of up to 51 metres and can lift a tonne at a radius of 40.7 metres. Features include twin 16 tonne winches driven by high pressure, variable hydraulic motors and the company’s Green Efficiency technology.
The crane went straight out to work alongside a 40 tonne Sennebogen 640 HD on the new Bretagne-Anjou road in Brittany. Among other tasks it will be used on the construction of a 45 metre steel bridge.
Based in Le Pellerin, just outside of Nantes, Lepine TP specialises in river, deep foundation and sheet piling work. In 2010 the company was acquired by the Angevin Group.
