Liebherr retrofits for Burger

Liebherr has retrofitted two LTM 1500-8.1 mobile cranes with low temperature equipment and an altitude package for Chilean crane contractor Burger Grúas.

Company owner Raul Burger said the cranes have been updated to suit the numerous climate zones in Chile: "For us, it is important to be ready to work flexibly throughout the whole country. That is why we had Liebherr retrofit our two LTM 1500-8.1 cranes with low temperature equipment and an altitude package. Our cranes are often used in mines, which are generally located at high altitudes.”

The two cranes are currently erecting turbines at a wind farm in southern Chile. “We also had the cranes modified by Liebherr so that the telescopic booms can be removed easily for transport. That's a real benefit for obtaining road permits. Furthermore, there are lots of bridges in our country which are only passable in vehicles under 60 tonnes.”

Burger Grúas recently acquired a LR 1750/2 crawler crane from Liebherr, which is now the most powerful crane in its fleet. It is currently at work in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile at a mining project.
