German crane rental company Franz Bracht Kranvermietung has expanded its construction and wind power assembly capabilities with a new 600 tonne capacity Terex Demag CC 2800-1 crawler crane.

Its first mission was to unload a 450 tonne transformer destined for an Enercon wind farm in Krefeld. It was transferred from a barge in a tandem-lift operation, carried out with an Enercon-owned CC 2800-1, onto a railway trailer for transportation to the Neurath power plant. The gross load, including the lifting gear, was 494 tonnes, and outreach was 24 m.

Both cranes were equipped with 42 m main booms. The superstructure was loaded with 160 tonnes counterweight, while the Superlift counterweight was 280 tonnes.
