Alanoca adds Grove GMK6300L to its fleet

The Bolivian rental company Alanoca has taken delivery of its first Grove GMK6300L all-terrain crane. The El Alto-based rental company added the GMK6300L to its fleet to keep up with the increased demand for lifting solutions in Bolivia, where a large number of construction projects are underway. The new Grove will arrive in October at Alanoca’s facilities and will see immediate use by contractors on numerous large-scale projects.

“The GMK6300L is well-suited to a wide array of projects, and operators will benefit from its versatility,” said Roberto Alanoca, spokesperson for the company and the son of its founder, Jorge Roberto Alanoca. “There is a lot of ongoing investment in construction right now, with government projects in particular seeing a boost in funding. We will employ the GMK6300L on several of these projects, including wind turbine assembly in the departments of Santa Cruz and Tarija; and combined-cycle power plants construction in Santa Cruz, Tarija and Cochabamba.”

The 300 t crane is the seventh Grove machine in Alanoca’s fleet and the second added by the company this year. It was purchased only three months after the rental company received Bolivia’s first 400 t GMK6400, which has already performed lifting jobs at two cement factories. Both Grove cranes will be put to use on major projects throughout the country.

Gerardo Castillo, Manitowoc's regional business manager for Bolivia, commented that the increase in the number of new construction projects across the country over the last three years has accelerated the replacement of the old fleet with more modern machines.

“We expect this trend to continue for the next five years at least, especially with regard to all-terrain cranes, which have higher capacity than rough-terrain cranes,” he said. “Now more than ever, contractors in Bolivia are seeking out high-performance cranes to meet their construction projects’ demands.”
