Manitowoc Partners Awarded the Prestigious Top Crane Brasil Award 2023

Several Manitowoc partners in Brazil are among the winners of the Top Crane Brasil Award 2023, one of the most prestigious recognitions in the industry. These awards celebrate jobs successfully accomplished in the country throughout the year and recognize crane rental companies for providing outstanding machines used in those projects. 

“We are very proud to see our partners recognized for their fantastic work and helping contractors find the right crane for the right job,” said Luciano Dias, sales director of Manitowoc in Brazil. “Top Crane Brasil is a reputable award in our industry, and it encourages companies to seek peak performance and earn recognition at the end of the year.”

The awards committee evaluated 49 projects last year, but only 16 have earned prizes in four categories: Lifting, Rigging Plan, Working at Height, Technical Removal, and Transport. The Manitowoc partners Guindastec Cranes (based in Sao Paulo), Transdata Engineering (Sao Paulo), Saraiva Equipment (Pernambuco), Tatuape Cranes (Sao Paulo), Makro Engineering (Ceara), Darcy Pacheco Group (Rio Grande do Sul) and Locar Cranes (Sao Paulo) are among the companies awarded. 

Guindastec recommended the use of two Grove cranes — one GMK6350 and one GMK6300L-1 — at a job on the Castelo Branco Highway for more efficient, quicker work. This highway serves as one of the main connections between the city and the state’s Midwest region.

Saraiva deployed a fleet of eight Manitowoc cranes to lift and move a metal module structure on a shipyard in the South of Brazil. The fleet included two Manitowoc 18000 crawler cranes and six Grove rough-terrain cranes: four RT540E, one RT650E, and one RT760E. The work was completed on the same day and ensured 25% cost savings. 

Transdata used its Manitowoc 18000 crawler crane at a natural gas thermoelectric plant expansion in Porto do Acu, Rio. The project presented a few challenges, which were successfully overcome by the machine on the job site.

The 14th edition of the Top Crane Brasil 2023 awards ceremony took place in Sao Paulo at the end of the year. Over the last decade, the award has gained a reputation for recognizing the best in the industry.

“We’ve had a substantial increase in the number of applications and attendees to the event over the last few years. People who were not even nominated showed up to celebrate colleagues, partners, and these incredible machines,” said Wilson Bigarelli, editor of the magazine Crane Brasil and event organizer.
