TEREX Corporation was awarded the contract by the US Marine Corps (“USMC”), Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, USA, to supply military all-terrain cranes (“MAC”) through its TEREX Government Programs contracting office in Stafford, USA. The USMC award was for a potential delivery of up to 130 cranes with a total potential contract value of up to $88.6 million. The initial delivery order is for production of four cranes with accessories, factory testing, limited logistics support and training for a value of $5.9 million.
TEREX Corporation delivered the first four 50-metric ton, all-terrain cranes to the USMC in July 2006 for required verification testing at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Full rate production has begun in early 2007.
The TEREX MAC-50 crane being supplied to the USMC is based on the TEREX Demag AC-50-1 all-terrain commercial crane, modified to meet demanding USMC-specified military requirements. Unique aspects of the TEREX MAC-50 configuration include salt-water fording capability up to 60 inches, US bridge law requirements compliance, and a drive train consisting of a Cummins engine and Allison transmission. TEREX will be manufacturing its MAC-50 cranes at its TEREX Demag plant in Zweibruecken, Germany. The TEREX MAC-50 cranes will be supported logistically world-wide through TEREX American Cranes, located in Wilmington, North Carolina, USA.
