Terex Cranes has signed a contract with China National Chemical Engineering Co. Ltd. (CNCEC) for the delivery of 41 cranes.

Terex Cranes has received an order for 41 cranes from China National Chemical Engineering Co. Ltd. (CNCEC). Terex reports that this is the largest order received by the company in China. The contract covers 7 Terex AC350/6 all terrain cranes in the 350 metric ton class and 34 Terex Changjiang truck cranes with capacities ranging from 25 tons to 130 tons.

The cranes are scheduled for delivery between the 4th quarter of 2010 and March 2011.

According to a Terex news release, CNCEC chose Terex to supply the cranes based on their reputation for quality and performance. "The new cranes will strengthen the company's position in bidding for domestic and international projects," Terex said.

"With this significant contract, we hope to establish a long-term strategic partnership with CNCEC," said Thomas Veith, Terex sales director China & Asia.

With capacities ranging from 8 to 130 tons, Terex Changjiang truck cranes are designed to be fully highway compliant for easy transport from job-to-job, according to Terex. These cranes are manufactured in Luzhou, China. All models utilize fully hydraulic telescopic booms, and the operator cab is fitted with ergonomically positioned controls that allow precise control of all boom, winch and slew movements.

With a total length of only 16.7 meters (54.8 feet), the AC 350/6 is the most compact mobile crane in the 350-metric ton (386 ton) capacity class. This crane can be rigged for a wide range of lifting tasks: in the class of less than 220 metric tons (242 tons), with a partial counterweight, as an alternative to medium and large 5-axle mobile cranes. In the 200-350 metric ton (220 - 386 ton) range, it is the most powerful crane available at this time, both regarding its main boom and its different extensions, Terex said. The company said the AC350/6 can reach the performance of a 400-metric ton (440 ton) class mobile crane with its large lifting capacity with a telescoped boom length of approximately 60 meters (197 feet), or with its maximum system length of 125.7 meters (412.4 feet).
