Grove at $5.4 billion airport expansion in Brazil


A Grove RT880E rough-terrain crane is working round-the-clock on the expansion of the Viracopos International Airport in Campinas, near São Paulo, Brazil. The 75 t (80 USt) capacity crane provides general lifting duties at the project, which will create a new 110,000 m2 (360,892 ft2) terminal that will double passenger traffic to 14 million a year. Built at Manitowoc’s Passo Fundo facility in Brazil, the Grove RT880E, which features a 39 m (128 ft) boom, is owned by Constran, a leading contractor in the country since 1957.
