that was

in 1963 .

A

KAMOV helicopter was

required and a great

deal of team work to

erect a tower crane at the very top of Ger-

many’s highest mountain.

Today, the crane temporarily marks Germany’s highest

point at 2,975 m for the construction of the new Eibsee

cable car

The erection of the 150 EC-B 6 Litronic Flat-Top crane

from Liebherr on Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze,

went perfectly. A team of experts from Liebherr together

with Swiss airline Heliswiss and the planners from Bayer-

ische Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn AG ensured that the erec-

tion work ran completely smoothly.
