Sims Crane

Sims Crane & Equipment Co., the largest private crane rental and rigging service company in Florida, showcased the world’s first battery-powered crawler crane at their corporate headquarters in Tampa. After the presentation, Sims completed a demonstration of the crawler crane’s capabilities. The crawler crane’s battery powered engine cuts local carbon emissions completely, and is capable of operating for eight hours unplugged, or for an unlimited amount of time when connected to a power source. Liebherr and Sims say there is no compromise in performance between the electric version of the crawler crane and its diesel-powered counterpart. The crawler crane is also reported to be significantly quieter than its diesel counterpart, making it ideal for construction jobs in residential areas, at hospitals and in other locations where noise pollution may be a concern. simscrane.com
