PCE Ltd are excited to welcome the first of 2 new Liebherr 160t crawler cranes to its existing fleet.
Committed to continuous improvement, PCE continues to invest in its long-term success, from the development of innovation and people through to investing in technology and equipment. Two new Liebherr 160t crawler cranes are an excellent example of the positive progress PCE continues to make.
The new additions to PCE’s existing crane fleet will significantly increase operational performance, improving the quality, speed, and efficiencies of lifting operations. The new Liebherr cranes also see a reduction in carbon footprint with a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions and cleaner engine functionality compared with previous models, adding more environmentally friendly and sustainable plant to PCE’s growing fleet.
It is a great to see the first one in action on site, ready to start lifting around 100 tonnes per day of components including precast concrete, steel, timber and hybrid elements.
Continuous investment into PCE not only sees the advancement of its fleet, but the progression of its people. Having joined the company as an installer, Nick Wright wanted to pursue his ambitions of becoming a fully qualified crane operator. With the company’s support, Nick has successfully completed the required qualifications and training, and PCE are thrilled to see him achieve his goals and take the reins of the new crane.
Nick Wright, Crane Operator:
“I’m delighted to be operating PCE’s new crane. The advantages compared with previous cranes is clear to see, with the new model more efficient with increased safety features – I can’t fault it! It is a positive step for both myself and PCE.”
Chris McReynolds, Supply Chain Director, had the following to say on the new cranes:
“It’s great to see PCE continue to invest in our business, in plant and equipment to keep PCE self-sufficient in our works where we can. This is great example for our business being in control of our works and not being constrained by the marketplace.
It’s great to see Nick Wright in control of his new crane, and it makes me very proud to see how he has taken control of getting the crane rigged and handed over to the business from Liebherr, ready to go to work in an efficient and safe manner.”
