Germany-based crane rental services company Schmidbauer Gruppe has ordered six Liebherr cranes to support offshore and onshore wind farm construction.
The models purchased includes an LR 1800-1.0 crawler crane with an 800-tonne maximum load capacity that will be used to assemble onshore wind turbines; and an LR 11350 crawler crane with a 1,350-tonne maximum load capacity for use at the Fos-sur-Mer offshore wind farm near Marseille, France.
The order also includes an LTM 1110-5.2, equipped with Liebherr’s new LICCON3 crane control system.
Christoph Kleiner, managing director of sales at Liebherr’s Ehingen plant, said: “The energy transition is both a challenge and an opportunity. We are looking forward to setting the right course together with our customers and, in particular, to mastering future challenges alongside such a long standing partner as Schmidbauer.”
