Guindastes adds a Liebherr

October 6 - Brazilian crane rental company I.V. Guindastes has purchased a used LR 1600/2-W crawler crane from Liebherr.

The 600-tonne capacity crane is now erecting wind turbines for Wobben Enercon in João Camara in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte, where it has lifted a 65 tonne rotor star in a single hoist to a height of 97 m.

"The Liebherr crawler crane has a very functional design and is economical to use," explains Igor Boff, I.V. Guindastes co-owner. "Its track width of just 5.8 m makes it ideal for travelling on narrow tracks in wind farms." 

After inspecting the mechanical and electrical components of the LR 1600/2-W, which was built in 2012, the crawler crane was completely repainted by I.V. Guindastes, which also purchased two used Liebherr LTM 1100-4.2 mobile cranes earlier this year.

I.V. Guindastes' fleet includes 25 mobile and crawler cranes, 18 of which are Liebherr models.
