The first 20 Liebherr duty cycle crawler cranes for DSI at the test stand in Nenzing.

Liebherr secured a major contract comprising 51 HS 825 HD duty cycle crawler cranes for the Turkish General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works (DSI) already at the end of last year. In August the first 20 cranes are delivered to the customer.

All duty cycle crawler cranes for this order are fitted with 1.9 m3 dragline buckets. Besides flood protection their main tasks include dredging works in rivers and lakes. This guarantees the draught that is required by ships operating in shallow waters.

The delivery of the remaining cranes is scheduled for October and November.
