18 months ago Alatas became the Spierings distributor for South East Asia. After close cooperation and planning with Spierings, Alatas welcomed the opening delivery of their mobile tower cranes with their arrival in Hong Kong. The first sale was for Gammon Construction’s Hong Kong International Airport project and marks an exciting advancement for construction crane solutions in the region.
This latest partnership with Spierings is a part of our Construction & Industrial services operating from our established stations in Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Hong Kong. We are excited to share our expansive network and expertise with Spierings to bring their innovative range mobile tower crane solutions to customers, old and new.
What makes Spierings different
Through this partnership with Alatas, Spierings offer an alternative and novel solution for project managers and crane operators of construction projects in the region. The Dutch company’s mobile tower cranes such as the SK 2400-R and the SK 1265-AT6 offer speed and versatility on top the same lifting capabilities of most traditional tower cranes currently operating in South East Asia.
The SK1265-AT6 is road legal in most countries in the region and can be set up in a short time with the erection or setting down of the jib in approximately 10 minutes.
The SK1265-AT6 is an “all in one” crane. There’s no need for a separate trailer to bring the counterweight, as the counterweight is already incorporated in the machine, automatically extending once the crane was erected. There’s no need a crane lorry for steel pads. These also come with the machine and placed into position thanks to its auxiliary crane.
With a significant outreach up to 60m and a maximum height of 66.2m, a Spierings mobile tower crane does the same work as most large mobile cranes.
