Donges SteelTec is investing in two new gantry cranes at its Darmstadt site.
Dr. Peter Schäfer, Production Manager of Donges SteelTec GmbH, calls the acquisition of the two new double-girder gantry cranes, which were commissioned on schedule on June 26, “An important investment in the future of our bridge and building construction production”.
The lifting capacity in the former lightweight hall will be increased by the two cranes from 2 * 10 to 4 x 20 tons, so that components with unit weights of up to 80 tons can be produced. The company thus has expanded production capacities for heavy bridge and steel building constructions at its disposal.
The cranes have already successfully passed the first test in the production of the “Stokkumer Straße Emmerich” bridge. The next application will be for the components for the bridge structure “A1 left bank of the Rhine”.
