Based in Bogotá, Colombia, ConcreArmado Ltda. purchases a Liebherr LB 35 drilling rig. With a specialization in bridge construction and infrastructure, the company will use this machine to assist in deep foundation work on local bridge projects.
ConcreArmado choose this machine due to the powerful drilling drive for big diameter piles, as well as economic fuel consumption and state of the art safety features. Fernando Amar Garzon, Owner and CEO, notes, “The high quality of the machine, light weight transport, and jack up system were fundamental in our purchase. We also value the local Liebherr service and support.”
The LB 35 is the successor of the proven rotary drilling rig LB 28-320. Its torque is 350 kNm, resulting in a 10% increase in comparison to its predecessor. Among its main characteristics includes the simple transport including folded leader as well as the wide working area due to the parallel kinematics. Additionally, the LB 35 has a robust leader which can easy handle high torques and strong tractive forces of the rope crowed system.
