Our Markets

Civil Works

Over the last decade, Sarens has been involved in many new-built civil construction activities around the globe, providing cranes for steel assembly work and installation of complex roof structures for soccer and event stadia, as well as industrial buildings.

Soccer games generate strong emotions amongst the spectators but also at the level of the clubs, the investors and the engineers who design them. All are unique and challenge the manufacturers for innovative solutions. Sarens provides engineering support to the designers and develops liftingsolutions for the complex steel structures whether those require cranes, strand jacks, or a combination of lifting devices..

Sarens has a rich history in accelerated bridge replacement and installation technologies. In the early eighties, Sarens moved its first bridge with SPMTs. Today, an average of 70 bridge projects are executed each year using alternative rapid replacement technologies, and many more with the use of cranes.Diemen Copyright Vermelden Foto Mix

Sarens developed specialised equipment for creative and tailor-made solutions, and is able to do all design and engineering in house.

Our goal is to be the world's leading one stop service provider in meeting the needs of our nuclear power industry clients.

Solar Industry

Although the solar industry is still in its development stage, Sarens has already gained profound experience in the construction of solar towers. For the construction of these towers, Sarens uses its heavy luffing tower, cranes which consist of a modular system that can reach up to considerable freestanding heights with different jib lengths.

As these types of cranes only require a small ground area, it makes them an ideal solution for solar projects.

Maintenance & Assembly

A large volume of our business comes from the maintenance and montage industry.

We serve all sectors on all continents with the varied capacities of our different cranes and special trailers.
