Taking note of this compact crane’s popularity and all-important green credentials, Osprey has signed a contract with Tadano UK for a brand new CC3800-1.

Osprey’s crane fleet continues to expand. We’re working with many clients who have key infrastructure projects that demand bigger and more capable machines – but also with clients who, like us, believe it’s important to invest in green technology.

To date in 2023, Osprey has invested in a variety of cranes including a CC2400, a CC3800-1, an LTR1100 and an LTM1200. In addition to those units, we also have further invested in our technical lifting solutions with a new Enerpac JS250 hydraulic gantry system. As we are prioritising green credentials, we expand our capability even further with the purchase of an additional, brand-new CC3800-1, direct from Tadano UK.

SIMON MASSEY, Chief Commercial Officer, Osprey:

“Our existing CC3800-1 has more than proven its worth. Because they come with a variety of load options, these machines offer superb flexibility for complex challenges and challenging sites. They have exceptional capacities for such a compact crane. This, coupled with the pipeline that followed-on naturally, plus the unit’s impressive green credentials and the great support we’ve been getting from Tadano UK, made it a very easy decision to place the order for a second, brand new CC3800-1. We’re looking forward to it arriving in Q4 this year, ready for work in 2024.”

As the CC3800-1 will be Tier 4F and Euro 5 compliant, and meets all current emission standards, this new machine will have green credentials that meet Osprey’s ESG policies – an all-important criteria for project managers intent on meeting their own ESG targets, across the supply chain.
