Hiab gains additional order for the Finnish Defence Forces' equipment renewal programme
30 March 2017
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has won a major additional order from Scania Finland to supply 69 MULTILIFT XR21Z hooklifts and 7 HIAB X188 cranes to the Finnish Defence Forces. The value of the order is around EUR 2.5 million and it has been booked into Cargotec's 2017 first quarter order intake.
The Finnish Defence Forces is continuing to renew its equipment and is now using the remaining options in its original request for tenders. The original order in 2014 comprised 172 MULTILIFT XR2IZ hooklifts, 13 HIAB X188 cranes and 16 MULTILIFT CHU container handling units. The value of that order was approximately EUR 6.4 million.
"The equipment we have delivered to the customer has met its expectations, due to which our cooperation with Scania Finland continues to prosper. Deliveries for the latest order will commence this year and will be completed in the first quarter of 2018," says Tom Suomela, Head of Hiab Sales, Finland.
