Indian infrastructure contractor NCC has taken delivery of the first Liebherr LTR 1220 telescopic crawler crane in India.

The 220 tonner was put to work on the Nagpur Metro project lifting girders for two new metro lines with a total length of 38 km. Its full-load pick and carry capability was useful on this project. Telescopic crawler cranes are also quick to set up and dismantle and have a short boom extension and retraction time.

To operate on the metro site the crane was supplied with polyamide pads for its double grouser crawler tracks. With the pads it can operate inside without damaging a floor and without the pads the grousers are better for traction off-road.

NCC began with Liebherr in 2010. It operates a 400 tonne capacity crawler and a 200 tonne wheeled mobile crane.
