In construction news, equipment rental and load movement company, ENTEC Longhi & Cia, located in the Amazonian city of Manaus, has added a 500 t capacity Terex AC 500-2 all-terrain to its fleet for projects with Brazilian energy company, Petrobras.

The AC 500-2 made its way to Manaus via ship and upon arrival was unloaded by Entec's Terex AC 350/6 and AC 200-1 all-terrains.

Reinaldo Longhi, commercial director from Entec said: “We are very happy with our Terex all terrain cranes, so when we wanted to expand our fleet both in number and capacity, the decision came naturally. Our new Terex AC 500-2 will allow Entec to maintain its leadership in the Amazon region.”

The crane will be put to work at in the construction and installation of thermoelectric power plants in the north of Brazil.
