Rolls-Royce to supply MTU engines to Terex Cranes for the Demag AC 600-6 and the AC 45 City crane

The new Demag AC 45 City Crane

Rolls-Royce is to supply MTU engines to equipment manufacturer Terex Cranes for two new Demag models. The Demag AC 300-6 will be powered by a Series 6R 1500/OM 473 engine, and the AC 45 City crane by 6R 1000/OM 936 engines, Rolls-Royce said in its press release.

MTU and Terex Cranes have a long history together, with MTU supplying engines for nine mobile crane models and four crawler cranes down the years. The successful partnership with MTU is now to be continued for the company’s current range of cranes.

Dr. Aaron Haußmann, Head of Construction and Agriculture Sales at MTU, said: “MTU leads the pack when it comes to drive systems for large mobile cranes. As well as Terex Cranes, numerous other big-name construction equipment manufacturers such as Tadano and Manitowoc also source many hundreds of Series 1000 to 1500 engines per year from us.”

The two new Terex Cranes models are all-terrain cranes, able to move on or off-road, making them ideal for building telecomm towers and overhead cable masts, power stations and container terminals as well as for use in rescue and recovery operations, and for revision and testing activities.
