INZAG Germany GmbH Ships New Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 to Ghana for Road Construction Contract

INZAG Germany GmbH has procured a Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 mobile crane specifically for a road construction project in Ghana. The German construction company has been awarded the contract for the expansion of the 64km long first section of the Eastern Corridor Road from the port city of Tema, not far from the capital Accra, to Akosombo.

Construction company INZAG, headquartered in Wiesbaden, has been awarded the contract for “Lot 1”. Managing Director Achim Becker explains: “The development of the first 64km from the port town of Tema to Akosombo is highly complex. Through the city, the road will be widened from two to six lanes. This will be followed by a section with a four-lane expansion. Even further north, the road will have two lanes. Included in the project are roundabouts, flyovers and river crossings, as well as numerous pedestrian bridges.”

INZAG is currently setting up the construction site. Purchasing Manager Benjamin Knell reports: “The new Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 will also be used during the mobilisation phase to set up the construction site. In addition, we will use the flexible 4-axle crane for steel construction and prefabricated assembly. As an all-rounder, the 90t mobile crane will be a key piece of equipment for the construction project. In addition, more cranes are needed on site, especially larger equipment for the heavy lifts.”

The LTM 1090-4.2 combines mobility, performance and economy in a superb package. It is economically mobile all over the world, as it can be moved with different axle loads for road and construction site travel. ECOdrive and ECOmode reduce its fuel consumption and noise emissions – better for drivers and the environment. The VarioBallast® variable counterweight radius and the VarioBase® variable support base provide extra performance and safety as well as enormous flexibility in use. With its 60m telescopic boom and lattice extensions, the 90t crane can reach lifting heights of up to 76m and radii of up to 62m.
