02/23/2021 Expanding the fleet – Darcy Pacheco takes delivery of Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1
- Reliability of the Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 is impressing
- Liebherr after-sales service in Brazil: “extraordinarily good”
Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso, one of the most important cargo handling company in Brazil, has invested in a new LTM 1500-8.1. The company has had extremely positive experience with the Liebherr 500 tonne crane and is impressed with its reliability. The LTM 1500-8.1 is the most successful crane in its class. The large crane will tackle jobs in industry, infrastructure projects and the assembly of wind turbines for Darcy Pacheco.
This is not the first Liebherr 500 tonnes of Darcy Pacheco. The company has experienced other LTM 1500-8.1, which were providing sterling service in its fleet. “We are very happy with our LTM 1500-8.1 cranes”, says Eduardo Silva, Maintenance Director at the company. “As we are receiving increasing demand for this lifting capacity class, we made enquiries about another 500 tonne model. When it came to choosing the machine, in addition to capacity, the delivery time that Liebherr was able to offer was another positive.”
The new LTM 1500-8.1 arrived in Brazil in November 2020. Its first job was at a major building site, involving expansion work at a paper factory. After completing this work, the 500-tonne crane is going to work in wind turbine assembly.
Darcy Pacheco and Liebherr have a partnership dating back twenty years. Eduardo Silva continues: “We rely on Liebherr as its machines have excellent quality. In addition, Liebherr’s after-sales service here in Brazil is extraordinarily good.” Liebherr has technical-assistance technicians well trained to support customers whenever needed, all over Brazil.
The Darcy Pacheco Group was founded in 1977 and comprises three companies – Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso specialises in hoisting work of all kinds, whilst DPS Wind focuses on wind turbines and Pacheco Logística provides heavy and special haulage services. The three brothers and company founders Adauri, Ademilson and Adaureci Silva manage the group which has over 600 employees. In addition to a number of other machines, the Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso Fleet includes telescopic mobile cranes with lifting capacities up to 500 tonnes and crawler cranes with lifting capacities up to 750 tonnes. Darcy Pacheco will be receiving a new giant in 2021 – the company has ordered a Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 with a lifting capacity of 800 tonnes.
