Crane for crane – which is the strongest
The LTM 11200-9.1 has a 100-metre telescopic boom, the longest in the world, and can lift up to 1,200 tons.
Pioneering the way upward
The mobile crane is helping with the construction of the wind turbine foundations and the water battery.
To new heights
The tower crane arrives at the construction site in 22 truckloads. The mobile crane raises the first sections of the tower crane to a height of 40 metres. After that, the tower crane is then self-climbing. It is fixed to the concrete foundations and later also to the wind-turbine tower. As a result, it remains stable, even in strong winds.
Everything under control
Crane driver Ralf Karras also often operates the powerful LTM mobile crane by means of remote control. And this has to be done with millimetre precision. "It is all a question of feel," says the Berliner.
In safe hands
Liebherr mobile cranes pick up the concrete shells prefabricated by Max Bögl. They go straight from the low-loader to the construction site. There, the individual components are assembled to form the wind-turbine tower.
Symbol of the energy transition
The green energy construction site in Gaildorf towers above the Swabian Alps. The imposing construction is not only attracting interested spectators from across the region. The Naturstromspeicher is also drawing in large numbers of technical specialists and media representatives from all over the world.
