11/10/2014 New flagship at Kran Saller: Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 in wind farm
By investing in an LTM 1750-9.1 from Liebherr Kran Saller based in Deggendorf has massively boosted its crane fleet. The new flagship with a maximum load capacity of 750 tonnes was delivered in July. The large crane was recently used at Berngerode wind farm near Fulda, Germany, where it erected concrete towers up to 89 metres high for twelve wind turbines.
The heaviest parts were the foundation rings which each weighed in at almost 80 tonnes. Although the adapters used to connect to the steel tubular tower segments were considerably lighter at 55 tonnes, they had to be hoisted to a height of 89 metres by the LTM 1750-9.1. "The LTM 1750-9.1 from Liebherr is the only crane in this load capacity class which can erect the concrete towers for Max Bögl towers", said Sascha Wolf, project planner from Kran Saller about his new flagship.
