Galfar Al Misnad, a leading construction company in Qatar, has ordered a pair of Grove GMK4100L-2 all-terrain cranes through local Manitowoc dealer Mannai Trading. Galfar Al Misnad has been using Grove cranes for over 18 years, with its fleet already featuring an array of all-terrain and rough-terrain cranes.
The first of the GMK4100L-2 cranes was handed over in March 2023 at Grove’s facility in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Anwar Sadath, Head of the Plant Department at Galfar Al Misnad, and Kareem Ramadan, Sales Manager at Mannai Trading, both traveled to Wilhelmshaven to receive the new crane. After handover, the crane began its journey to Galfar Al Misnad’s newly-built plant and equipment workshop in Doha, Qatar, before deployment on its first job at Ras Laffan, assisting in the construction of a gas pipeline as part of the local North Field Expansion Project. The second GMK4100L-2 from the order will also be sent to the same project once it reaches Qatar.
The GMK4100L-2 all-terrain crane is a four-axle, 100t capacity crane that delivers both compact size and power. It has a width of only 2.55m and MEGATRAK suspension, allowing it to maneuver well into and out of position on jobsites. It’s capable of carrying 6.8t of counterweight in its taxi configuration, with overall vehicle weight at 12t per axle.
“We choose Grove cranes for their reliability and durability, as well as their strong after-sales service, excellent resale value, and operator-friendly designs,” said Sadath.
