Pergamo Sollevamenti Take Delivery of New Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1

The crane and heavy haulage company Pergamo Sollevamenti S.r.l. has taken delivery of a new LTM 1650-8.1. With a lifting capacity of 700t, it will be the largest crane of the Italian family-owned company.

“We chose the 700t crane to increase the maximum lifting capacity of our fleet and to be able to serve the needs of our customers”, says Managing Director Antonio Pergamo. The long telescopic boom was particularly convincing. The 8-axle crane offers a length of up to 80m.

Pergamo Sollevamenti has already been able to gain good experience with a Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 since the end of 2020. The 300t crane is used by the Italian company in the wind energy sector, among others. It has carried out repair work on an 80-metre high wind turbine at a wind farm in the Italian region of Molise. The old generator had to be removed and a new one installed. The 6-axle unit with its 78-metre long main boom and a 12.5-metre long folding jib was equipped for this.

“Our Liebherr cranes play an important role in our crane fleet because of their versatility”, declares Francesco Pergamo.

VarioBase® allows for requisite flexible support. This increases the safety and lifting capacity of Liebherr cranes. The LTM 1650-8.1 also features the VarioBallast®. The ballast radius can be infinitely varied between 6.3 and 8.4 metres with a simple hydraulic swivel mechanism. The small radius offers advantages in tight working environments. With a large radius, the crane reaches its maximum load capacities. The LTM 1300-6.2 and LTM 1650-8.1 also feature high mobility and short set up times.

“We decided to purchase the Liebherr mobile cranes because we value sustainability, digitalisation and efficiency when renewing our fleet. Liebherr is the world’s leading manufacturer of telescopic cranes”, says Anna Pergamo, explaining the decision in favour of Liebherr mobile cranes. “We already plan to purchase more Liebherr cranes”.

For more than 20 years, the family business Pergamo Sollevamenti S.r.l. has been mainly active in the wind power, petrochemical and industrial sectors. The management is jointly in the hands of the father Antonio Pergamo and his children Francesco and Anna Pergamo. In addition to the rental of mobile cranes and aerial work platforms, the company also offers work in the field of heavy transport.
