The crane was primarily designed for wind power projects and Liebherr has delivered over 220 units in the 13 years since its launch.

The final LR 1600/2 will be delivered to the Netherlands-based van Adrighem.

Liebherr launched the LR 1700-1.0 as the successor to the LR 1600/2 earlier this year. The first of these units was delivered in June.
