Whyte’s GMK6300L is only the fourth of this model to arrive in the UK from Grove’s factory in northern Germany.

The boom of the GMK6300L extends to 80m, which is longer than any 300-tonne telescopic crane on the market.

Owner Lawrence Whyte said: “We are very excited about this crane and its capabilities. We will take on more work and complete even more demanding lifts,” he said. “An 80 m boom on six axles is truly impressive, plus the crane can travel on UK roads with very little limitations, making it ideal.”

The GMK6300L will be based in Ellon in northeast Scotland and will work at projects across Scotland. Primary lifting jobs will include wind turbine maintenance and work at petrochemical facilities.
