The lift of the 100m-long truss was part of a steel skeleton erection for a maintenance hangar for business jets at Schwechat Airport, Vienna.

Wels-based crane and heavy load contractor Felbermayr also used three smaller Liebherr mobile cranes for positioning and installing cross and connecting elements.

A total of 800t of steel was lifted to form the hangar structure.

Meanwhile, Felbermayr has been investing in its Eastern European operations with purchases of the Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane with 1,000t lifting capacity and three large LR 1750 crawler cranes.

The LR 11000 is currently installing a 300t reactor at a refinery near Bucharest.
