The largest cranes in the package include an LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane, and the LR 1700-1.0 and LR 11000 crawler cranes. 

The order also includes an LTC 1050- 3.1E compact crane with a load capacity of 50 tonnes, and an LRT 1130-2.1 rough-terrain crane, with a maximum load capacity of 130 tonnes, both of which were unveiled at the 2022 bauma trade show in Munich. 

Speaking on the investment, Matthias Wasel, managing director of Wasel, said: “With the replacement and expansion investments, we want to contribute to the ongoing modernisation of the equipment fleet, taking into account sustainability aspects with regard to the emissions standard.” 

According to Liebherr, the cranes will be used for the assembly and disassembly of wind turbines, and the maintenance and repair of industrial plants in collaboration with Hagedorn.
