World Crane Championship 2016

TIM HANSEN - WORLD CRANE CHAMPION 2016!

Among 15 finalists Tim Hansen won the championship final with a time of 2:51:42, Guido Beaujean from the Netherlands got silver with a time of 2:53:99, and Martin Utpatel from Germany won the bronze final with a time of 2:51:01.

"I have been nervous from the start," Tim Hansen commented after the race. Tim Hansen has his own company, Tim Hansen APS, and has been operating cranes all his life. It runs in the family: Tim's grandfather Sven Aage Hansen, aged 82, has driven cranes for over sixty years and father Sören Hansen is also a crane operator. "The best thing about being a crane operator is working in the summer time," Tim Hansen said with a smile.

Tim Hansen will return home with the title of World Crane Champion, a EUR 5,000 travel cheque and EUR 20,000 to aid the purchase of a new HIAB crane. In fact, Tim Hansen is considering using his prize money on a new HIAB X-HiPro 232, the same model that was used in the final.
