Dutch crane rental company expands fleet with LR 1160.1 Unplugged Dutch crane rental company Bultena Verhuur has bought a battery-powered Liebherr LR 1160.1 Unplugged. The crane handover took place at the recent Bauma show in Munich, Germany.

The addition to its fleet represents part of its CO2 reduction strategy which it has been pursuing since 2013. According to Liebherr, other than the zero emissions during operation, a key feature of the crane that appealed to Erik Jansen, owner of Bultena Verhuur, was its low noise level. When idling the sound level of three Unplugged crawler cranes is equivalent to a normal conversation says Liebherr.
