Paving The Way for Vital Infrastructure

The machine averaged 5 km a day.

The transport infrastructure needs in economically emerging regions of the Asia-Pacific are so significant that roads are being built at an unprecedented rate. According to the Asian Development Bank, the Asia-Pacific alone requires an investment of $1.7 trillion a year over the next decade in order to keep up with economic growth and tackle poverty and climate change. Investment in infrastructure projects across Indonesia, in particular, has risen rapidly to respond to an economy that is set to expand by 5.3% this year and next. Read more >>

Robust all-rounder with innovative safety features: Bauer duty- cycle cranes are the right choice for challenging applications throughout Europe

At Menard in Poland, an MC 96 was used at various locations to improve the groundfor the subsequent construction of structures in the interesting and challenging technologyof dynamic soil compaction with a 20-t falling weight in automated operation, or to compactrefuse at landfill sites in order to save space.

Over the last few years, the MC duty-cycle crane series have solidified their territory in the Bauer product portfolio and are the preferred choice for many specialist foundation engineering methods requiring the use of such equipment as the basic machine. In particular, the development of the new mid-size platform has provided excellent conditions for a broader expansion beyond exclusively foundation engineering applications. This applies primarily to traditional duty-cycle crane equipment, such as mechanical and hydraulic grabs, vibrators of various designs, but also the use of pounders in automated soil compaction. The MC's robustness has a particularly positive impact here. Read more >>

Hillside hauling with two TA300s

TA300 Terex Trucks articulated hauler


Deep in Omaio Forest in New Zealand, Gaddum Construction is using two TA300 Terex Trucks articulated haulers to move end material and metal for road-building as well as shift logs. In spite of the slippery surfaces and steep slopes, the project is now close to completion, thanks to the durability of the Terex Trucks machines. The small coastal town of Omaio takes its name from the Māori word for a ‘place of peace, quiet and tranquility’ – and it’s not hard to see why. It is located on the east side of New Zealand’s North Island, approximately 57 km east of Opotiki.
