Superlift erects wind turbine

30 October 2013

Franz Bracht Kranvermietung has used a Terex Superlift to erect wind turbines at Scharell, Germany. The Enercon E-101 wind turbines at the wind farm have a hub height of 149m.

Terex said that the crane's lateral outriggers, allowed the Bracht team to erect it with much less ballast than would be necessary and without an assist crane which reduced transport costs. The crane was fully set up with an SLS + LF_4, 153 m main boom and +12 m LF Superlift configuration in two days.

Terex said that the Superlift 3800 is the only crane in its capacity class of 599t to 699t that can erect Enercon E-101 wind turbines with up to 150m hub heights.
