Saudi Arabian crane and heavy haulage company Rezayat Sparrow Arabian Crane Hire Co.Ltd. received the keys to 16 Liebherr mobile cranes at Bauma 2022. In addition to two rough terrain cranes, an LRT 1090-2.1 and an LRT 1100-2.1, Rezayat Sparrow also purchased 14 telescopic mobile cranes. These comprise five LTM 1110-5.1, two LTM 1110-5.2, an LTM 1150-5.3, three LTM 1160-5.2, an LTM 1230-5.1, an LTM 1250-5.1 and an LTM 1650-8.1. "The order for the 16 cranes will support the performance of our overall fleet. These new LRT and LTM machines will greatly assist us in meeting our ongoing customer enquiries while maintaining a fleet of modern, reliable machines," explains Raymond Cron, General Manager of Rezayat Sparrow. They will mainly be used in the construction, petrochemical, mining and renewable energy industries.
Cranes supplement and expand the crane fleet in the upper lifting capacity range
Rezayat Sparrow already had two Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 cranes in its fleet. Due to the company’s excellent experience with these two cranes, it decided to purchase their successor, the LTM 1650-8.1. “The higher capacity of the LTM 1650-8.1 is a logical complement to our two LTM 1500-8.1 cranes, which have proven to be the outstanding cranes in our fleet since 2004. At the same time, the new 8-axle can do even more,” says Cron enthusiastically. In a lifting capacity comparison, the LTM 1650-8.1 outperforms its predecessor, the LTM 1500-8.1, by 15 to 50 percent, depending on the equipment. The maximum lifting capacity of the LTM 1650-8.1 is 700 tonnes - 200 tonnes more than its predecessor. The new crane also tops the LTM 1500-8.1 in terms of maximum hoist height by ten metres, reaching up to 152 metres and maximum radius by four metres at 112 metres.
Long-standing business relationship and Liebherr service the key
Rezayat Sparrow and Liebherr have a long-standing business relationship. The majority of the contractor’s fleet is made up of Liebherr equipment. “We considered other manufacturers, but the support and service we receive from Saudi Liebherr Co.Ltd. is first class. We wanted to feel confident that we would have reliable support for our investments,” adds Cron.
Liebherr has subsidiaries in Saudi Arabia as part of its worldwide service network. A state-of-the-art service centre was built in Dammam in 2016, offering the usual reliable Liebherr customer service from an experienced service team.
