One hoist instead of three – new boom system on the LR 11000 delivers greater efficiency

The Nordex Delta 4000 wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 149 metres is the latest generation onshore system in the four to five megawatts power class. In the past, three hoists were required to install the generator at its hub height of 108 metres – the nacelle, drivetrain and hub were hoisted separately and assembled at the top of the tower. American crane specialist Buckner Heavy Lift Cranes has now demonstrated that the work can be carried out more quickly, more easily and more economically – with one hoist rather than three.

Increased hoist height and radius – Liebherr unveils a jewel for any crane fleet with the LTM 1150-5.3

After manufacturing around 1500 units, Liebherr has now unveiled the successor to its successful LTM 1130-5.1 – the LTM 1150-5.3. With a maximum lifting capacity of 150 tonnes and a 66 metre telescopic boom, it is also the perfect addition to Liebherr’s crane range below the 180 tonne LTM 1160-5.2. The 10 percent longer telescopic boom compared to its predecessor will hoist on average 15 percent higher loads with both maximum and part ballast. And with this in mind, the Liebherr engineers have produced a minor miracle – the new crane has the same low gross weight as its predecessor. With an axle load of twelve tonnes, the crane can carry nine tonnes of ballast on public roads. Find out more
