Wherever there is a breeze
Green energy, energy revolution or the exit from nuclear and fossil-fuel energy – however you call it, wind power is helping all of us in the 21st century to ensure we have enough energy to power cars, fridges, heating, households, traffic lights or trains. But the installation of wind turbines is not that easy.
Quite often the right wind is where the ground is hard to reach - if there is ground at all. This is where our LR crawler cranes come in handy, at onshore installations or mountainous areas, flat lands or even offshore sites. In our range of crawler cranes there is a model for every task in the wind industry.
For around one year the IJsselmeer (Lake IJssel) in the north of the Netherlands was the scene of an unusual job for a LR 11350. The crawler crane erected the complete "Westermeerwind" wind farm from a massive jack-up platform. Crane contractor Mammoet completed 48 Siemens wind turbines with a hub height of 95 metres...
The premiere jobsite of the LR 1300 SX is in a wind park in Nolan, Texas. The crane is used for hoisting and then again for installing the rotor of five 80m tall wind turbines for maintenance works. Each of the rotors has a weight of approximately 69 t...
Our engineers have taken a quantum leap forwards with the SX boom systems for crane models LR 1750/2 and LG 1750, designed for wind applications. The improved lifting capacity values resulting from the reinforced lattice booms enables the 750-tonne cranes to lift weights reserved for the next higher class of crawler cranes...
Certain cranes from the LR series do not require an auxiliary crane for their assembly, which is a great advantage for remote wind farms...
More mobility and increased lifting capacity – this is how we have enlarged the concept of the LR 1750 to the LG 1750.
Featuring the upper carriage from the crawler crane, the LG possesses the under carriage of a mobile crane – based on eight axles.
The blades on the latest generation of wind turbines are nowadays installed individually using rotor blade yokes. Liebherr has developed a system for this future-oriented application, which makes the installation process safer, more economical and in many cases also greener – the SLGS single-line guiding system.
