Tadano is harmonising the crane portfolios of its German subsidiaries Tadano Faun and Tadano Demag and in the future will be relying more strongly on mtu engines from Rolls-Royce

The move adds to the long-standing cooperation between the two companies. Cranes built in Lauf an der Pegnitz and Zweibrücken in Germany are sold in many countries worldwide. Most of Tadano’s 26 crane models with two to nine axes and payloads from 45 to 700 tons are already powered by in-line mtu Series 1000, 1100, 1300 and 1500 engines. These deliver power outputs from 129 to 480kW, and besides compliance with EU Stage III to V emissions standards boast low running costs, high reliability and an excellent power-to-weight ratio. Expansion of the partnership will see the sale of around 3000 mtu engines and Daimler transmissions by the end of 2025.

Jens Ennen, president and CEO of Tadano, said, “This cooperation agreement marks a milestone in the re-orientation of our mobile crane business. We’re delighted to have strong, reliable partners like Rolls-Royce and Daimler Truck at our side as we grow. Even in the midst of the pandemic with its supply chain uncertainties, Rolls-Royce has continued to deliver reliable drive solutions of the highest quality.” 

Tadano’s standard platform strategy reduces the complexity of its portfolio, enabling customers worldwide to benefit from better products and a more streamlined service.
