The 1,000-tonne heavy duty crane will be used to handle industrial goods such as gas turbines and mining excavators on the Franco-German border between Basel and Strasbourg – saving several thousand kilometres of road transport.

The skyline of the industrial port of Rostock has had a new landmark since the summer – one of the most powerful land-based gantry cranes in the world is now located on the Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH site in the form of the TCC 78000. With its boom fully luffed, the colossus reaches a height of 164 metres. The crane can hoist loads weighing up to 1600 tonnes – with a radius of 36 metres. A high lifting capacity and hook height were required to position the massive top section of the boom. That called for large mobile cranes.

Just three hours rather than the normal 18 and no need to close the waterway – all made possible by the most powerful conventional crawler crane in the world. Mexican crane and heavy haulage contractor ESEASA used its Liebherr LR 13000 crawler crane for the first time to load oil platforms onto barges at the port city of Tampico.

Now even more powerful – the LTM 1750-9.1 gets an 800t upgrade

Now even more powerful – the LTM 1750-9.1 gets an 800t upgrade

The nine-axle LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane can now hoist even heavier loads. The use of refined static calculation methods means that lifting capacity values have been increased across almost the entire working range. This has converted the crane into an 800-tonne machine. The model name LTM 1750-9.1 will stay the same.

V-frame proves itself in practice

V-frame proves itself in practice

Our LR 11000 has successfully completed its first jobs using the innovative, highly flexible “V-frame” ballasting system. The 1000-tonne crane operated by Swiss crane logistics contractor Emil Egger AG completed a spectacular bridge hoist near Lausanne and also removed an old lightship from the River Rhine in Basel. If the V-frame had not been used, these two crane jobs would only have been possible at significantly higher cost.

Children with famous parents often have a hard life. They are under heavy pressure from birth and are expected to be successful. That is exactly the situation facing the new LTM 1650-8.1, which Liebherr unveiled at the Bauma trade fair. And it’s all because it is the successor to the living legend that is the LTM 1500-8.1. With a volume of almost 600 units, it is already the best-selling large crane of all time.

Technical progress and entrepreneurial continuity the recipe for success

Technical progress and entrepreneurial continuity the recipe for success

In the 50 years of the company’s history, Liebherr in Ehingen has only had two Technical Directors. This is an example of entrepreneurial continuity – a feature to which Liebherr has always attached a great deal of value. It was a special honour for us to be able to talk to Rudolf Becker, who was responsible for design between 1971 and 1994, and his successor Dr Ulrich Hamme about the development of Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes.

Premiere with an Alpine

Premiere with an Alpine

The era of one of the most successful crane models ever produced at the Liebherr plant in Ehingen is slowly but surely coming to an end. The thousandth LTM 1200-5.1 mobile crane recently rolled off the assembly line at the crane factory. The last of this model is scheduled to be built and delivered in just a few months’ time. However, its successor has not just been waiting in the wings for some time, it is in fact also already conquering construction sites around the world – the Liebherr LTM 1230-5.1. The new crane celebrated its premiere in April in Switzerland.

“Never before in almost 120 years of its history has such a heavy item been handled at our Rhine port using cranes”, explains Jürgen Preiss. And Preiss, a member of the port management team, knows exactly what he’s talking about. The load that he is referring to was the core piece of a gigantic tunnel drilling machine. Two powerful crawler cranes from the Liebherr Plant in Ehingen were required to tackle this job.

A crane job between splendour and megalomania

A crane job between splendour and megalomania

It may surprise you to learn that there are alternatives to Neuschwanstein. If you want to find out a little more about King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his (credibly recorded) eccentricity, you could do worse than travel to an island in Chiemsee in Bavaria, where the crowds will be somewhat thinner. Visiting Herrenchiemsee New Palace, modelled on the Palais de Versailles in France, will leave you just as open-mouthed at the world of make-believe created by the Bavarian Fairytale King as travelling to Neuschwanstein Castle, the most famous of the four Royal palaces which Ludwig had built during his 22-year reign.
