07/07/2015 Mobile crane LTM 1300-6.2 from KVN assembles power pole
For numerous applications involved in the expansion of German power lines, KVN Autokrane GmbH has procured a new LTM 1300-6.2 mobile crane from Liebherr. In May, the 300-tonner successfully completed a crane job in this field, in Lower Saxony. KVN is extremely satisfied with their new mobile crane. And the Single-Engine Concept from Liebherr best proves itself through practical application.
In Vechelde in the district of Peine, KVN's LTM 1300-6.2 assembled a new power pole. The heaviest individual part was the lower grid, weighing 27 tonnes. KVN equipped their crane with 56 tonnes of basic counterweight and the 5.5 metre long assembly jib for the task. For the lift and deposit of the load, the KVN made use of a Liebherr LTF 1060-4.1 telescopic truck-mounted crane as an auxiliary crane. Once the new electricity pylon was installed, the power lines were reassigned from the old tower to the new with the LTM 1300-6.2. Subsequently, the 300-tonner dismantled the old power pole.
Kai Giesker, Commercial Director of KVN Autokrane GmbH, is impressed by the Liebherr Single-Engine Concept, which was implemented for the first time the LTM 1300-6.2: "We view the new Liebherr single engine design very positively. If Liebherr has new ideas, as a customer for many years, we are confident that they will prevail on the market. We aim to support these new technologies right from the start."
