Heavy lift and haulage service provider Steil Kranarbeiten, Trier, Germany, has taken delivery of the first Terex Superlift 3800 lattice boom crawler crane.
The crane was picked up by Steil Kranarbeiten general manager Birgit Steil, Reinhard Kiebel, workshop manager, René Perlich, team leader heavy cranes and Karl Trippel, technical director, from the Terex Zweibrücken facility. It was ordered with 159 metre main boom and 12 m jib for LSL and LF configuration.
The 650 tonne capacity Superlift 3800 has a maximum load moment of 8,426 tonne-metres. Its maximum load of 650 tonnes is out to a radius of 12 m. It has been designed for worldwide transportation and reduced erection time. The crawler can be delivered with a wind kit and is capable of installing wind turbines 117 m high. It includes the Terex fall protection system and conforms to both the European norm EN 13000 and the US standard ASME B30.5.
Speaking on the Superlift 3800, Birgit Steil said, “The crane’s design as a whole was what ultimately led to our decision – with a design optimised for transportation and its powerful performance characteristics, this new machine will allow us to tap into a variety of new industrial and wind power potentials.”
The Superlift 3800 crawler crane went straight to Gödenroth where it was set up for work on a wind farm.
