MCM Takes Delivery of Demag CC 3800-1 Lattice Boom Crawler Crane

HOUSTON, TX — General Manager Lionel Autaa of Autaa Group — which includes MCM Levage as one of its companies — could barely wait to take delivery of the new Demag CC 3800-1.

“Erecting wind turbines has always been an important business area for MCM, so when the company was acquired by the Autaa Group, it was only natural for it to also become more important for the group,” Autaa said before pointing out that this is one of the reasons why they urgently needed the CC 3800-1 for upcoming wind power projects.

“Demag offers an extraordinary range of cranes for erecting wind turbines, and all of them are easy to transport, fast to set up, and extremely versatile. That’s why our fleet has the right Demag CC crawler crane for every lifting height and every load weight,” Autaa said. The thing he especially values about the CC 3800-1 is its versatility, which makes it possible to configure the crane optimally for all requirements, as well as the fact that an assist crane is not required in order to erect the main boom.

When the CC 3800-1 is combined with the Boom Booster Kit, Autaa said: “That combination turns the CC 3800-1 into a genuine wind turbine specialist that can reach a hook height of 174 meters and lift up to 80 tonnes at this height. This is something that normally only cranes in the 750 tonne class can do.” The CC 3800-1 is popular in the wind power industry — especially when it comes to erecting large turbines.
