Five new Liebherr flat-top cranes for Otto Wulff23 September 2022
The construction of school buildings in Leipzig will be the first project for German construction company’s new tower cranes.
Hamburg-based construction company Otto Wulff is expanding its fleet of tower cranes with five new Liebherr EC-B cranes. The third-generation family company from northern Germany has placed orders for two 220 EC-B 10s, two 340 EC-B 12s and a 220 EC-B 12.
All ordered cranes, featuring custom paintwork, will be delivered to the third-generation family company throughout autumn 2022.
Once delivered Otto Wulff will have a total of 32 Liebherr tower cranes from the K, EC-B and EC-H series in its fleet. The most recent EC-B additions are from Liebherr’s ‘Tough Guys’ series designed to offer good lifting capacities and quick, straightforward assembly.
The new cranes’ first assignment, scheduled to last a year, will be the construction of school buildings in Leipzig.
The 220 EC-B 10 and 340 EC-B 12 are involved in building a secondary school, which is set to become part of the new Löwitz quarter. Together with partners, Otto Wulff is currently in the process of developing an urban quarter to the west of Leipzig's main railway station that will include around 500 residential units as well as offices, cafés, restaurants, a hotel and a day-care centre. The new secondary school will be at the heart of the quarter.
A second new school building is also taking shape at Prager Spitze in Leipzig. A 220 EC-B 10, a 220 EC-12 and 340 EC-B 12 are involved in this project.
“The new 220 EC-B 10/12 and 340 EC-B 12 cranes fit in perfectly with our existing Liebherr tower cranes,” said Michael Jahn, head of crane logistics at Otto Wulff. “Their modular design and outstanding load capacities mean we can put them to optimal use.”
