HIAB 088 loader crane
Hiab has received a significant order for over 1,200 loader cranes from Tata Motors, the largest Indian automobile company. The deliveries will start in late 2015, with the contract due for completion by the end of 2016.

The contract follows a tender for trucks issued by the Indian army in 2009. Tata was one of the five bidders, and bagged the order for over 1,200 army trucks together with HIAB 088 loader cranes. The trucks and the cranes had to undergo extensive tests and trials in various environmental conditions for a number of years after which Tata and Hiab emerged as winners.

According to a spokesman for Hiab GBO India, "Hiab has been working (for) a long time with this Indian Army project and we are delighted that the HIAB cranes were chosen after having undergone stringent testing".

The HIAB 088 series is designed for rough operations and the cranes that will be delivered for Tata Motors were adapted to meet the army's requirements.

The trucks and cranes will be used for transportation, loading and unloading of pallets, spares and other operational equipment.
