Mammoet Australia's new Liebherr LG 1750 arrives at the docks
8. June 2018
Mammoet Australia has taken delivery of a new 750 tonne Liebherr LG 1750 lattice boom truck crane in order to keep pace with growing demand for new and large wind turbine installation work.
The LG 1750 crane is specifically designed to meet wind turbine erection requirements and has the option of an SX2 boom configuration and heavy duty jib for high lift capacities at hook heights of up to 175 metres. Maximum tip height with luffing jib is 200 metres.

Operations manager Riki McMahon said: “Wind farms in Australia are being installed at an even greater scale in order to generate more electricity to meet the renewable power targets set by the Australian government. Hub heights and therefore rotor blades, nacelles and tower sections are all growing taller, which subsequently requires larger cranes to carry out installation.
The addition of these cranes ensures we are equipped for the future developments and demands of the market. SOURCE: Vertikal.net
