Office block overlooking the Eiffel Tower
The Hekla Tower reaches up to a height of 220 metres and has already become a real eye-catcher in the La Défense skyline. A Liebherr crane 280 HC-L 16/28 is currently helping to erect the building for offices and services in this large business district, three kilometres from the city boundary of Paris.
The luffing jib crane is perfect for this project because its work includes moving heavy glass and metal elements. The skyscraper provides a superb panoramic view of the City of Love – including the Eiffel Tower – from its enormous terraces.
Liebherr tower cranes build the highest building in Europe
A total of ten Liebherr tower cranes are currently erecting the Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg, Russia. The construction project includes what will be the highest building in Europe, the Lakhta Tower, and an adjoining multi-purpose building. Three 710 HC-L 32/64 Litronic and one 357 HC-L 12/24 Litronic luffing jib cranes are being used for the construction work on the tower. Three 357 HC-L 12/24 Litronic luffing jib cranes and three 280 EC-H 12 Litronic High-Top cranes are in action on the multi-purpose building.
