Crane service provider Wiesbauer deployed its Cometto SPMT’s to move a Liebherr crawler crane at the Rugendorf wind farm in Germany.

Wiesbauer used the MSPE self-propelled vehicles in a 14-axle combination, onto which the 42 m-long derrick mast with a dead weight of 60 tonnes was loaded.

The Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane was disassembled after the erection of a wind turbine and was re-assembled at the next location.

Jochen Wiesbauer, company director, said this method of transport to save time compared with alternative methods. Wiesbauer added that there were tight bends along the route but, “the Cometto vehicles impress with their flexibility and manoeuvrability”.
