During the last phase of an ambitious expansion program, the Galloo Group has put a second E-CraneT into service at their Menen/Halluin scrap yard. The integration of this machine was carefully considered. At the end of 1999, a unit became available and the decision was taken to put a second E-Crane™ into service.

Mr. Rik Debaere, Technical Director, explained his decision as follows: "Based on the great experience we have had with our first E-CraneT and the flexibility it brings to our operation, we had to take advantage of this opportunity. The reliability and durability of this product are considerably longer than the more traditional material handling equipment. Also, because of the fact that a mobile, crawler mounted E-CraneT is driven by a generator set, we can use shore power when feeding our shear - an important economic advantage!"

The crane will be used to feed a new shear. In close cooperation with E-Crane International, the crane was dismantled, transported and carefully erected. A new overload system was mounted and a new scrap grab was delivered. This scrap grab was built according to detailed customer specifications and successfully commissioned.
