Bothar Boring & Tunneling Order Demag® and Terex® Cranes for Middle East Operations
29 May 2017
Sydney Australia’s Bothar Boring & Tunneling is expanding its operations to the Middle East with the addition of three all terrain cranes: a Demag® AC 500-8, a Demag AC 100-4L and a Terex® Explorer 5600. After evaluating multiple crane brands and models, Bothar Boring & Tunneling awarded its business to Terex Cranes because of the manufacturer’s record for providing the quality products that deliver the best return-on-investment and have a strong long-term residual value.
Bothar Boring & Tunneling has been operating in the Middle East since 2010 and has successfully completed many high profile micro-tunneling sewer and cable tunnel projects in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi, and the United Arab Emirates. After recently being awarded major contracts for micro-tunneling jobs in Qatar, the company determined it needed to add additional units to its current fleet of 15 cranes. In the company’s line of work, the compact size and asymmetric outrigger positioning, is vital for working in tight areas.
