Everything is extreme on Germany's highest construction site. Anyone working here at almost 3,000 meters must be cast from a very special mold. Just as the 150 EC-B from Liebherr has been faithfully serving its purpose in all weathers for the past two years. Here you can see what special challenges the construction of the new cable car on the Zugspitze has placed on man and machine.
The highest wind turbines with 246,5 metres. A pilot project which will for the first time make green energy storable and thus available on a flexible basis. One of the most exciting chapters in the future of Germany's energy transition is being written near Schwäbisch Hall – with the help of Liebherr cranes.
The ultimate vehicle: 4,500 litres of fire-extinguishing water, 400 litres of foam, nine crew members on board, plus all the tools and hydraulic rescue equipment. The fire service can always be relied on. One reason is because Rosenbauer fits its vehicles with high-performance pumps using Liebherr technology.
Hans Eisele has been working for Liebherr, where he normally spends his time fitting state-of-the-art concrete mixing trucks with mixer drums, for 37 years. Today, however, he is dealing with an "old-timer", a 1977 Liebherr truck mixer.
In a high alpine setting, duty cycle crawler crane operator Yann Blouet excavates sediment from the depths of a reservoir to keep a power plant running. The site in the mountains has all the ingredients for a great adventure.
"Hey Mia, is there still milk in the fridge?" – "The inventory says there's one carton!" When Miriam Hunger talks to her fridge, she's not actually thirsty. She is a member of Liebherr’s "digitalisation" team.
Producing a complete aircraft using a 3D printer? That stage has not yet been reached. However, a team of researchers at Liebherr is gradually getting closer to achieving this dream – working in tandem with evolution.
