Structures, engineering and technical masterclasses - wherever things arise cranes are often used. Cranes, that drive the world. Therefore, we are proud to show you some examples that say: Made with Liebherr!
Field test – the latest engine and emissions technology
Over the last few months, there has hardly been a news bulletin which has not mentioned “particulate pollution” or “diesel bans”. The topics of environmental protection and statutory regulations pose a daily challenge to Liebherr as well. Since mid 2017, crane rental contractor ESB based in Mittelbiberach has been testing an LTM 1070-4.2 with an engine which complies with emissions stage 5. We talked to Karl Engeser, the owner of Kranverleih ESB, Karl Stöhr, Head of Product Management at Liebherr in Ehingen and Daniel Rössner, Test Engineer at Liebherr about the challenges and solutions in this field.
Digging deeper: How did the Liebherr spider come about?
It was October 2017. A new email from his line manager popped up on the screen, looking for ideas for a technical highlight and eye-catching display for the customer days in 2018. At the same time, structural engineer Thomas Stangl reviewed the highlights of previous customer days in his mind’s eye: The crane mobile with three suspended crawler cranes and the M sculpture with two rotating LTM 1750-9.1 cranes standing on their heads.
Liebherr is well known for its good, reliable service. At the same time, the demands on customer service are rising steadily. Christoph Kleiner is the director responsible for global sales at the Mobile and Crawler Cranes Division. This means that he is also responsible for customer service.
The old railway bridge had spanned the Buchenbach Valley as part of the railway line between Burgstetten and Affalterbach, around 20 kilometres north-east of Stuttgart, for a whole century. But now the days of the historic lattice construction were numbered. Deutsche Bahn AG set the bridge at time limit until the end of the year as a result of its structural strength and condition. The Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane from Wiesbauer has now replaced the bridge with a temporary structure.
New crawler crane, new transport concept, new ballasting system, new model designation – and truly powerful as well. Liebherr unveiled the LR 1800-1.0 crawler crane at its customer days in 2018. In its basic concept, the 800-tonne crane is designed for jobs in industry.
Energy revolution 2.0 – the green electricity storage facility
One of the most exciting systems of the future in the energy revolution is currently being constructed near Schwäbisch Hall. The "Gaildorf green electricity storage facility" pilot project sees wind turbines combined with a decentralised pumped-storage power plant make green energy storable for the first time, making it available flexibly.
The LTM 1090-4.2 is a shining example of sophisticated mobile crane technology – high lifting capacities, variable driving states, ECOdrive, ECOmode, VarioBase®, VarioBallast® and much more make it a flexible, economical, powerful all-rounder.
Liebherr now also builds rough-terrain cranes. The LRT 1090-2.1 with a lifting capacity of 90 tonnes and the LRT 1100-2.1 with a lifting capacity of 100 tonnes deliver maximum safety, off-road capability, performance and flexibility.
