At the beginning of January, the first 4 Performer GPL 980 purchased by SICIM arrived in Sivas area, in Anatolia, to offer their effective contribution to the construction of TANAP project.
The project rises thanks to the collaboration between Euro Pipeline and SICIM, a company that has deeply believed to develop the design of the latest version of Performer GPL 980, a machine that ensures a lifting power of 98.000 kg thanks to the Caterpillar Engine and Bosch Rexroth components, in addition to perfect balance, manoeuvrability and usage ease.
They had been delivered in dismantled parts and divided in two open top containers, ensuring an important saving on transportation costs.
Even in the worst climatic conditions our Performer GPL 980 showed all its best features, giving also an excellent contribution to the construction of N° 2 section of “TANAP-Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline”, a structure 2.450 km long and built with pipes of 56” size.
The reassembling process had been really quick and allowed a saving on the usual transportation costs up to 80%, compared to the average expenses in the market of pipe lying. Performer GPL 980 can be dismantled very easily, thanks to its tracked structure. Tighter and more compact than traditional machines, even the frame can be carried with minimum effort through containers open on top.
