German crane rental company Wiemann Autokrane has upgraded its fleet with the addition of a Demag AC 250-5 all-terrain crane from Terex.
The new crane will primarily be used as an assist crane for erecting wind turbines. As such, the company specified a configuration featuring a long 33-metre fly jib and Terex’s IC-1 Plus control system. The control system calculates lifting capacities for every position of the crane’s boom subject to the slewing angle of the superstructure, allowing for maximum lifting capacities.
According to Terex, “With a width of only three meters and a total length of just under 14.5 meters, the AC 250-5 is the most compact crane in its category, making it ideal for work sites where space is tight. The IC-1 Plus control system also… makes it possible to safely work with asymmetrical outrigger setups.”
