Berlin-based BTB Logistik in Germany has added a new 750 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 wheeled mobile telescopic crane to its lifting fleet.

The crane was handed over to Andreas Malischewski, BTB Logistik CEO, at the Ehingen factory in Germany. "The LTM 1750-9.1 will be used in the wind industry and in refineries and chemical plants as well as for transshipments in ports. We are also intending to use the new mobile crane for bridge construction on motorways in Brandenburg," explained Malischewski.

The 9-axle crane will replace a 500 tonne capacity LTM 1500-8.1 in BTB’s fleet.
