Titan delivers Australia’s largest Electric Luffing Tower Crane


13 September 2018

Titan Cranes: The Titan Group of Companies (Titan), has introduced one of the world’s largest Electric Luffing Tower cranes to Australia, establishing a new benchmark in crane performance, environmental responsiveness and operational safety.

Titan has erected the JASO J780 crane on Grocon’s $700 million The Ribbon site where it works in unison with two other JASO J438 tower cranes. Grocon is the developer and constructor of The Ribbon, a new development in the heart of Sydney’s Darling Harbour which will feature a 25 storey hotel, serviced apartments and a modern new premises for the IMAX theatre.

The JASO J780 was recently released to the market by Spanish Crane Manufacturer JASO and is the latest in a new range of Heavy Lifting Tower cranes. The onboard technology is a culmination of joint Australian and Spanish research and development.

“We are proud to deliver this monumental crane to the Australian construction sector and pioneer the future of crane technologies in Australia,” said Damon Hanlin, Managing Director of The Titan Group.

“This crane brings exceptional performance with technologies unlike any other and moves Titan into new markets previously considered for diesel-type cranes only.”

The heavy-duty crane boasts a hoist speed of 310 metres per minute and can lift 28 tonnes in single line pull. The JASO J780 has a lifting capacity of 75 tonnes

“The J780 is unique and will be a very successful model. Its capacity, performance, cloud-based data logging, safety capabilities and transportability is unlike anything the industry has seen before,” said Damon Hanlin.

Over the past 17 years, Titan has introduced many “firsts” for the Australian construction industry and is the Australian market leader in Tower Cranes, Man and Materials Hoists, Mobile Cranes and Skilled Labour.
