August 26 - Moscow based crane hire company Topkran has taken delivery of its second 350-tonne capacity LR 1350/1 crawler crane.

The delivery was part of a four-crane order, which included two LR 1350/1 crawlers, an LR 1750 crane and an LR 1100 telescopic crawler crane.

Despite difficult economic conditions, the weak rouble, low material prices and sanctions, Liebherr informed that Topkran's order books are doing well, which led it to acquire additional cranes.

The new LR 1350/1 will be employed in the construction of the Volgograd stadium for the FIFA 2018 World Cup, where Topkran's existing LR 1750 is already in use.
