Since its successful launch of the 1000 EC-H at the Bauma 2013 in Munich, the largest standard crane in the EC-H series has been proving its worth in prestigious projects around the world. The 1000 EC-H is currently operating in several countries such as the Netherlands, Great Britain, Mexico, United States of America, Peru and Russia.

The construction of the new Erasmus Hospital in Rotterdam in the Netherlands is just one of the sites at which the 1000 EC-H 40 Litronic is currently operating, where particularly high hook heights and heavy load capacities are required.

The practical erection technology used by the 1000 EC-H ensured that it was erected efficiently and safely. The slewing platform including the switchgear cabinet and cabin were placed on the tower in a single hoist. The crane was fully erected and ready for use within just four days with a hook height of 67.9 m and a radius of 60.0 m.

The 1000 EC-H 40 Litronic hoists the prefabricated concrete parts which weigh up to 32 tonnes and positions them in their final location with millimetre precision using its Micromove fine positioning mode.

The largest standard crane from Liebherr is ideal for demanding jobs with high load torque requirements. The flagship of the EC-H crane series is available in four different versions. The two-rope 20 and 25-tonne versions are for high lifting capacities at the jib tip. They achieve maximum lifting capacities of 40 and 50 tonnes respectively with double trolley travel gear and four-way reeving. With this high adjustability the 1000 EC-H is ideal for demanding jobs at dam construction, power station and industrial construction sites, for bridge construction and in shipyards.
