October 14 - Belgium based crane contractor Dufour Transports et Manutention SA has taken delivery of a new 750-tonne lift capacity Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane.
Dufour, which also provides logistics, heavy haulage and construction engineering services, said orders from the wind power sector have increased enormously over the last few years, which led to the decision to invest in another large mobile crane
For its first job the LTM 1750-9.1 travelled to Aisne, France where it helped to erect a 2.75 MW wind turbine. Its compact dimensions and hoisting capacity were major benefits for this job.
A key feature of the nine-axle model is that the entire telescopic boom can be conveyed on public roads, Liebherr added.
