Lucky seven for Gruas Aguilar

Spain-based crane and heavy haulage contractor Gruas Aguilar has modernised its fleet with the purchase of seven Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes.

The order comprises one LTC 1050-3.1 compact crane, one LRT 1100-2.1 rough-terrain crane, two LTM 1130-5.1 mobile cranes, one LTM 1230-5.1, one LTM 11200-9.1 and one LR 1600/2-W narrow track crawler crane. The cranes have lifting capacities ranging from 50-1,200 tonnes

The LR 1600/2-W narrow track crawler crane has been specially designed for wind farm installation projects. With its crawler chassis measuring just 5.8 m wide, the fully equipped 600-tonne capacity lattice boom crane can travel from one turbine to the next on the narrow paths at wind farms.

Luis Aguilar, managing director at Gruas Aguilar, said: “We have been interested in the characteristics of the LR 1600/2-W for years, particularly its mobility on site and its lifting capacity. And then we decided that we had to have one of these cranes in our fleet. It will make an important contribution to our new wind power division which we are currently establishing in our company.”
