Liebherr MK 88 Plus mobile construction crane masters 1,600 lifts in the Swiss Alps

In the autumn of last year, a crane operation of epic proportions was required for one of the largest infrastructure projects currently under way in Switzerland. Under considerable time pressure, a new 900-square-metre base structure needed to be constructed for the new imposing Lake Grimsel arch dam in the Alps before the onset of winter. A large-scale concrete mixing plant is due to be built on the base this spring. The construction company Frutiger AG is involved in the project and in October deployed its MK 88 Plus Liebherr mobile construction crane to the construction site, located at an altitude of almost 2,000 metres, for this Alpine assignment.
