Germany-based H.N. Krane has taken delivery of a second Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1. Company owner Herbert Nadolny traveled personally to the Liebherr plant in Ehingen for the handover ceremony. This second 750-ton mobile crane will provide support for the company’s existing LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane.
“The LTM 1750-9.1 will enable us to increase the amount of pre-assembly of wind turbines we can complete. The 750-ton crane will also be able to carry out maintenance on the turbines”
– Mirko Schreiber, Site Manager Large Cranes at H.N. Krane
H.N. Krane took the decision to buy its second LTM 1750-9.1 as demand for its services from the wind power industry is increasing all the time. Loads are getting bigger and ever greater focus is being aimed at the efficient erection of concrete towers. The 750-ton model will add to the LTM 1500-8.1 in particular for the erection of concrete towers for wind turbines. The greater load capacities of the 9-axle crane enables it to erect higher towers before the LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane then fits the topmost sections of the latest generation of high wind turbines. Besides wind-turbines, the crane will also work in shipyards and for bridge constructions.
