Bezombes expands fleet with Liebherr

French crane contractor Bezombes has taken delivery of a 450-tonne capacity Liebherr LTM 1450-8.1.


With an 85 m-long telescopic boom, the eight-axle unit is capable of erecting tower cranes “in record time”, said Benoît Bezombes, managing director of Bezombes Niort.

The LTM 1450-8.1 is now the largest crane in the company’s fleet and will be used for jobs in construction, civil engineering, wind energy sectors, as well as for hoisting boats in and out of the water at Atlantic ports.
