When a Hindu community needed a mean-but-green lifting machine to help build their new temple, they turned to GGR Group.

Our very own zero emissions URW-376 mini crane sprang into action at the London site recently. The crane, which is powered by an on-board 48v battery pack, was used to lift sections of stonework weighing one tonne each.

A zero emissions machine was required in this instance due to the site being of religious importance. The customer specified that they did not want diesel equipment operating in this spiritual setting.

Boasting all the strength of a diesel-powered URW-376, the battery version, which features a mains-powered 110v charger, more than rose to the challenge.

The URW 376 is one of GGR Group’s most popular machines, and is regularly tackling a range of different projects. From lifting glass cabinets at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, to installing a heating exchanger in the main exhibition hall at the Museum of Scottish Industrial Life, the URW 376 has been used on a number of jobs.

The six-section hydraulic boom of the UNIC URW-376 crane provides a working radius up to 14.45m, while the 360 degree continuous slew (clockwise and anticlockwise) provides the flexibility to lift in both directions. With its excellent working radius, generous lifting height of 14.9m and radio remote control, the URW-376 leads the way as a mid-capacity mini crane.

Other zero emissions cranes in our fleet include the URW 295 and URW 095 models. These are proving very popular with food and drink outlets, and other environmentally sensitive areas.
