12 UNIC URW-1006+ Mini Cranes Delivered to Danish Defence

Danish Defence Sale

UNIC Cranes Europe, the European Master Dealer for UNIC mini spider cranes, has successfully delivered 12 of the world’s largest capacity spider cranes, to the Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and logistics Organisation (FMI) in Denmark.

The purchase of these machines will primarily be used by military staff to help lift and replace engines into leopard tanks. They will also be used to lift heavy components such as gear systems and rotor blades as well as helicopter blade storage containers and more.

The deal was made through UNIC Cranes Europe Danish Dealer, Lissner. As part of this, UNIC Cranes Europe also supplied a tailored 5-day technical training course to military personnel on these machines.

The UNIC URW-1006+ mini crane is extremely portable and quick to set up, their versatility and 10 tonne lifting capacity make them ideal for a wide range of military applications, as does their ability to handle a variety of environments, from arctic to desert conditions.

This unrivalled mini crane also has a unique pick and carry function which enables it to travel with loads up to 1.5 tonnes. Its configurable outriggers provide maximum stability when lifting on rugged terrain thanks to their full safety interlocking system.

Danish Defence Sale

UNIC Cranes Europe chief executive Graeme Riley said: “It is a real accomplishment for us as the master European distributor for UNIC cranes to have our machines successfully make the grade with the Danish Ministry of Defence. We have been working with Lissner and DALO on this opportunity for over 3 years. Lissner and UNIC Cranes Europe will be here to provide any further support and training along the way to ensure that our cranes prove to be an effective tool in aiding the Danish military with their work.

“UNIC mini cranes have already proven popular for military applications including essential lifting work for RAF Odiham and Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. A range of UNIC mini cranes were sold to the Ministry of Defence in 2012 to be used for lifting heavy aircraft parts when the Chinook engineering team were performing essential maintenance on their fleet of helicopters”.
