Linden Comansa LC 8952 being used to help construct a cement plant in Latvia

International cement giant Cemex is building a new plant in Riga, Latvia, with the help of a LC 8952 flat top tower crane from Linden Comansa.

Cemex is renting the crane from the Spanish manufacturer's Latvia dealer, Valiants SIA. It is being used to help erect the plant's cooling tower.

As standard the LC 8952 has a freestanding height of 89.8 m and an 80 m jib. This model, however, has been erected with an under hook height of 120 m, and a working radius of 40 m. Maximum load is 24 tonnes and it is 22 tonnes at the end of the jib.

The LC 8952 is Linden Comansa's largest crane and the only model that the manufacturer still produces from the popular 8000 series, which has been replaced by the LC 2100 range.
