The LiUP and its benefits

Perfectly tailored to Liebherr tower systems.

Perfectly tailored to Liebherr tower systems.

Perfectly tailored to Liebherr tower systems.

The rails for the crane driver elevator are coordinated to the lengths of Liebherr tower sections and require one-off installation. Existing tower sections can be retrofitted with the rails.

On the internal version the rails do not have to be removed for erecting and dismantling the tower crane. They remain in the tower section with the elevator during use and transport.

In an emergency, the LiUP can be operated independently from the tower crane's power supply. The power is supplied by a lithium ion battery with energy recovery. When the LiUP travels downwards you can recover approx. 40% of the energy using the innovative drive technology.
