Manufacturer Liebherr has delivered a milestone mobile folding construction crane to Heros Kraanverhuur. The Belgian-Dutch haulage company took delivery of the 750th unit Liebherr has built of this crane type.

The landmark crane, an MK 88 Plus from the MK series, was handed over at the Liebherr-Werk Biberach factory in Germany to Rob Heeren, Heros managing director. It is the third mobile construction crane owned by Heros, which has sites at Antwerp in Belgium and Moerdijk in the Netherlands. Work typically includes jobs on confined sites in urban areas or at ports, working on container ships, Liebherr said.

MK series cranes have been sold all over the world but the primary market is central Europe.
