MJR Contractors’ new Manitowoc 12000-1 crawler crane gets to work at the Tullamore Pumping Station and Reservoir in Caledon, Ontario.

Canada-based MJR Contractors has added a Manitowoc 12000-1 crawler crane to its fleet. The contractor acquired the crane to assist with work it is carrying out on the Tullamore Pumping Station and Reservoir in Caledon, Ontario.

“The job at Tullamore is fairly large and we needed a crane that could crawl between the pumping station and reservoir to make big lifts,” said Romeo Duarte, vice president of MJR

MJR bought the Manitowoc 12000-1 to complement the work being performed at the Tullamore jobsite by its Manitowoc 8500. There, the cranes are setting forms and pouring concrete, placing large pipes in the ground and assembling concrete forms.

MJR also plans to rent the cranes to a structural steel contractor that will be working at the reservoir and pumping station.

MJR bought both of its Manitowoc cranes from Canadian distributor Strongco.

The US$ 42.63 million Tullamore Pumping Station and Reservoir project is due for completion before the end of this year.
