Rieger & Moser and Fricke-Schmidbauer, part of the Schmidbauer Group, have utilised Liebherr mobile cranes to replace a debarking drum at the Sappi paper factory in Ehingen, Germany.
An LTM 1350-6.1 mobile crane from Rieger & Moser’s fleet and an LTM 1400-7.1 mobile crane from Fricke-Schmidbauer were used in tandem to lift the 90-tonne drum.
In order to replace the drum, the roof of the factory building was removed. The cranes subsequently raised the old drum out of its initial position, before guiding it through the gap between the two Liebherr cranes.
The cranes were then used to install the new debarking drum, which measured 32 m in length and had a diameter of 5m.
