Topkran orders big with Liebherr

Moscow-based Topkran has placed a EUR42 million (USD52.3 million) order with Liebherr for the delivery of mobile and crawler cranes.

The order includes cranes with lifting capacities ranging between 220 and 1,350 tonnes.

The Russian crane and heavy haulage contractor cited the growing market and increasing demand for large cranes in Russia as the reasons behind its fleet expansion.

The order includes two LTR 1220 telescopic crawler cranes, two LTM 1300-6.2 telescopic mobile cranes, two LR 11350 crawler cranes and one LR 1350/1, as well as an LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane.

Topkran, which to date has only been active in Russia, plans to expand its presence in CIS markets this year.

Karen Mkhitaryan, co-proprietor of Topkran, said: "Topkran plans to extend its range of services. We plan to offer complete project services, from logistics to installation, so that our customers can optimise their cost base and can order complete solutions from a single contractor."

The new cranes will have industrial applications and will primarily be used petrochemicals and infrastructure projects.
