May 11 - Wagenborg Nedlift has used a 750-tonne capacity Liebherr LR1750 crawler crane to replace a dryer drum at a sugar factory in northern France.

The old dryer drum - which is used to dry out liquids and convert it into powder - was lifted by the LR1750 crawler, equipped with 400 tonnes of superlift counterweight. Once removed, the 220-tonne drum was scrapped on site.

The new drum - a 240-tonne unit measuring 21 m long with a diameter of 10 m - was constructed on site before being hoisted by the same Liebherr crane onto its foundations.
