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

by GE.

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..

Faymonville trailers

on a new Egyptian

freeway project

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

possible payload.
