Fragile hoist for Liebherr
By Laura Hatton16 May 2014
Two new 750 tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 wheeled mobile telescopic cranes worked in tandem to install a glass roof at the Erding thermal water world complex in Erding, Germany.
The glass roof has a total area of 2,600 square metres. For the lift it was hoisted in two segments to a height of 20 m. The heaviest section of roof, including hooks and cross beams, weighed 203 tonnes. The nine-axle LTM 1750-9.1s were configured with the Y Guy boom suspension system and full ballast.
The cranes are owned by crane rental companies MSG Krandienst and Wiesbauer.
