Perfect Lift for Wind Farm

By investing in an LTM 1750-9.1 from Liebherr, Kran Saller based in Deggendorf, Germany has massively boosted its crane fleet.

The new flagship with a maximum load capacity of 750 tonnes was immediately used at Berngerode wind farm where it erected concrete towers up to 89 metres high for twelve wind turbines.

Its maximum load capacity of 750 tonnes and maximum hoist height of 154 metres are ideal for this type of application. It has variable equipment systems and massive flexibility during use.

At this wind farm, it erected the first 89 metres of twelve concrete towers for 2.5 Mw wind turbines manufactured by GE.

For this job, the crane was equipped with Y-guying system and a 35 metre luffing jib. The segments of the steel tubular tower up to the hub height of 139 metres, the nacelle, the hub and blades were then installed by a Liebherr LR 1600/2 crawler crane.

The heaviest parts were the foundation rings which each weighed in at almost 80 tonnes.

Although the adapters used to connect to the steel tubular tower segments were considerably lighter at 55 tonnes, they had to be hoisted to a height of 89 metres by the LTM 1750-9.1.

The LTM 1750-9.1 is the only crane in this load capacity class which can erect the concrete towers for Max Bögl towers

Faymonville trailers on a new Egyptian freeway project

Faymonville trailers on a new Egyptian freeway projectA new freeway is in construction between capital city Cairo and Alexandria. One of the leading transport companies of the country is ETAL (Egyptian Transportation & Logistics).

They are involved in part of this national construction project. To build a bridge over this new freeway, several beams have been transported from Arabco Shipyard Ismailia to Alexandria - a distance of about 420 kilometers.

Each beam weighed 35 tons with a length of 38 meters. The transport solution were the Faymonville TeleMAX trailers.

Due to its extending loading platform, the TeleMAX flatbed semi-trailer is ideally suited for the transport of particularly long or bulky loads.

Its lightweight design and great steering angle guarantee optimum maneuverability with the highest possible payload.
