A long night shift

Set up with 204 tonnes of counterweight and Y guying, the new LTM 1750-9.1 operated by Australian crane contractor Johnson & Young Cranes based in Melbourne, installed prefabricated bridge supports well into the night. The work had to be finished before the morning rush-hour started.

Please turn over

The initial assembly of the LTM chassis is carried out on its back for ergonomic reasons. Here we can see the last ever LTM 1500-8.1 being turned back into its normal position. The 626th and last of this legendary crane model passed through our final assembly with a touch of sadness. It also meant a final goodbye to the orange “big wheel”. This impressive piece of equipment was only required for turning LTM 1500-8.1 cranes and will now be removed.

Its final flight

A brand new G-LTM 1090-4.2 gave a former McDonnell F-4F Phantom II fighter jet its final flight. Timed perfectly to coincide with the celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of the creation of Tactical Air Squadron 74 in Neuburg a. d. Donau, the former fighter plane was relocated from the nearby airbase to the Wilhelm Frankl Barracks. The camouflage-coloured mobile crane had to hoist the fighter jet over the fences around the barracks several times until the 47 year old exhibit reached its final resting place at the site’s main guard post.

Very close to the sky

One of the most powerful telescopes in the world is currently being built in the north of Chile. On the 2682 metre El Peñón peak on the Cerro Pachón Ridge, an LTM 1500-8.1 from Chilean crane contractor Burger Grúas can be seen here installing a component measuring ten metres in width and weighing in at 28 tonnes through the narrow opening in the cupola of the Vera C. Rubin Observatory. In the future, the images will be recorded by a 3.2 million pixel camera, the largest digital camera ever planned, weighing around 2.8 tonnes and measuring 3 metres in length with a diameter of 1.6 metres.

Wherever the wind blows...

...Liebherr cranes are not far away! Crane contractor Wiesbauer undertook a job at Rugendorf wind farm (in Bavaria) with a new LR 11000. Four turbines with rotor diameters of 120 metres were erected quickly and successfully with the help of the new V-frame.

First ever LTM 1650-8.1 handed over

The first ever LTM 1650-8.1 left the Liebherr plant in Ehingen during November with a black-and-red livery. It went to Dutch crane and heavy haulage contractor, Mammoet. After all the prototype tests were successfully concluded, deliveries of the crane are now up and running. This crane was unveiled at the Bauma in 2019 with the slogan “The ultimate crane on eight axles” and was handed over in virtual form due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

Tandem power

An LTM 1500-8.1 and an LTM 1750-9.1 unload a 287 tonne hydraulic hammer in Singapore together. It is designed for ramming monopiles, used for the foundations of offshore wind turbines, into the seabed.
