Reaching the limit?

Colonia Spezialfahrzeuge used its 800t Liebherr LR 1800-1.0 crawler to tackle a job in a large wind farm in North Rhine Westphalia, Germany. Around 70 vehicles transported the components for the wind power version of the machine to the site. Four towers from system manufacturer Enercon had already been erected by an LTM 11200-9.1 with heights of up to 88m. Then it was the time for the LR 1800-1.0, towered with a 171m main boom and a 12m jib. For the heaviest components of the wind turbine, whose hub is at a height of 160m, the crane had to position gross loads of 89t.
