Breithaupt & Philipp expands with Liebherr

July 12 - Hohendodeleben, Germany-based crane contractor Breithaupt & Philipp has taken delivery of a Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 mobile crane.

Jens Napierala and Uwe Podlech, the managing partners of Breithaupt & Philipp, explained that the compact dimensions of the five-axle, 250-tonne capacity mobile crane offers many benefits compared to a six-axle crane in terms of road licensing and its VarioBallast.

"The fact that little licensing work is required for our types of use means that we can be very flexible with the 250-tonne crane and we no longer need to travel at night. That means lower personnel costs. These features of the LTM 1250-5.1 are extremely important for our branches in the Berlin-Brandenburg area. The long fixed jib also enables us to extend the range of services of the crane," said Podlech.

According to Leibherr, the crane will mainly be used for concrete and industrial assembly work and for repair work on wind turbines.

Breithaupt & Philipp, which has a fleet of 25 telescopic mobile cranes, provides crane rental and heavy haulage services as well as focusing on heavy-duty steel construction and the relocation of high voltage transformers.
