Earlier this year, a brand new 750 tons crawler crane, type Liebherr LR1750, was delivered to Wagenborg. This ‘big boy’ will be utilized on large construction projects in the power industry, the petrochemical industry and the power industry. The new machine is equipped with a main boom, luffing jib and derrick mast. The crane is prepared for connecting to a super lift counterweight carrier. In super lift configuration, ultra heavy lifts can be carried out, which happened during its maiden lifting job at TKS Duisburg.
A few weeks later another heavy lifting job occurred for Wagenborg, which was commissioned to us by Dior Heavy Lift. A reactor of 163 tonnes had to be exchanged at the Yara site in Brunsbüttel , Germany. For this project the LR 1750 was equipped with a main boom of 42 meters and a luffing jib of another 42 meters. For exchanging the reactor the crawler crane was configured with 150 tonnes super lift counter weight. Removing the old reactor and installing the new one all happened in just one day. Safe and according to schedule.
