March 5 - Bergheim, Germany headquartered crane and heavy lift contractor Wasel has purchased 20 Liebherr mobile cranes.
The order consists of cranes with lifting capacities ranging from 40 - 750-tonnes.
The fleet is decorated with the new blue and white Wasel livery - the first step towards renaming the company from Breuer&Wasel.
The largest crane ordered is a LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane - the first of its kind delivered to a German customer. The 750-tonne 9-axle crane has been deployed directly from the Liebherr manufacturing plant to its first job - the assembly of wind turbines.
Joint managing directors Matthias and Thomas Wasel visited the Liebherr plant on the day when six of the cranes were delivered. The pair signed a further order for a Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom mobile crane, planned for delivery in autumn 2013. The 750-tonne LG 1750 will also be used for the installation and assembly of wind turbines.
