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 me-
tres high for twelve wind turbines.
Its maximum load capacity of 750 tonnes and maxi-
mum 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 89metres of twelve
concrete towers for 2.5 Mw wind turbines manufactured
For this job, the crane was equipped with Y-guying sys-
tem and a 35 metre luffing jib. The segments of the steel
tubular tower up to the hub height of 139 metres, the na-
celle, the hub and blades were then installed by a Liebherr
LR 1600/2 crawler crane.
The heaviest parts were the foun-
dation 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
“The LTM 1750-9.1 is the only crane in this load capac-
ity class which can erect the concrete towers for Max Bögl
towers”, said Sascha Wolf, project planner from Kran Saller..

on a new Egyptian
A 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 construc-
tion project. To build a bridge over this new freeway, sev-
eral 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
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
