Hiab has received a significant order worth EUR7.5 million (USD7.53 million) for Hiab iX.2758 RAIL super heavy loader cranes, including installation and five years ProCare service agreements with warranty extension by Tecnove. The order was booked in Cargotec’s Q3 order intake with deliveries scheduled to start in the second half of 2023.
The super heavy cranes are the biggest Hiab cranes ever and will be installed on Tecnove-designed trucks.
Tecnove is a leader in the manufacture, transformation and maintenance of bodywork and special vehicles, and the trucks will be used by a Spanish rail organisation.
The Hiab iX.2758 RAIL has been specifically designed to meet railway infrastructure standards and, as the biggest in the recently launched RAIL series, it has a lifting performance of 20,000 kg with an outreach of 10 m.
The eight Hiab iX.2758 RAIL loader crane models are equipped with the SPACEevo control system with additional railway safety features to comply with the industry standards, as well as connectivity to access Hiab’s HiConnect service.
“We are proud to have won this tender with our new railway-specific crane together with our partner Tecnove. Key to the success was Hiab’s great service network dealers in Spain as well as the HiConnect system that guarantees maximum productivity for the rail organisation company. This innovative loader and rescue crane solution is a door opener for Hiab into the world-wide railway industry,” says Ronald Verzijl, managing director, Hiab Iberia.
In 2021, over 50 cranes to be used in the Spanish railway industry were supplied by Hiab.
