Brazilian crane company decides for Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 due to high capacities at large radius
LTM 1750-9.1 equipped with boom extensions and 91 meter luffing jib
First operation of the 800 tonne crane: maintenance of thermoelectric plant
Cargo handling and special transport company Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso received its newest mobile crane: the 800-tonne-capacity giant LTM 1750-9.1 arrived in Brazil on June, 10th. Here the 9-axle-crane debuts its operations in maintenance of a thermoelectric plant in the northeast of the country. Darcy Pacheco ordered the heavy-duty crane with telescopic boom extension and 91 metre luffing jib.
Industrial maintenance increasingly demands equipment capable of operating in more restricted areas. What could easily be done with crawler cranes, due to their high lifting capacity at large radii, now often needs machines that are more compact and powerful at the same time. “When we choose for the LTM 1750-9.1, we had its high load capacities at large radii in mind,” says Eduardo Silva, maintenance director for Darcy Pacheco. “With this 800-tonne crane, we are able to perform services that we used to perform with crawler cranes, benefiting from greater mobility and the possibility of operating in more restricted locations”, he adds. The LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane will operate mainly in the maintenance of industrial plants, such as petrochemicals, pulp industry and maintenance of wind farms.
Darcy Pacheco's LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane arrived in Brazil equipped with the exclusive Liebherr VarioBase® system. With this variable supporting system, crane work is secured via the LICCON control system even when the crane outriggers are not fully extended, for example in restricted areas. The 800- tonne crane also has ECOdrive: The additional eco mode delivers enhanced drive properties which both save fuel and reduce noise.
“Our partnership with Liebherr has been going on for years. We already had mobile cranes with capacities between 100 and 500 tonnes, and 400 to 750 tonnes crawler cranes in our fleet. Now we have increased capacity with this 800 tonne mobile crane”, as Eduardo Silva highlights about the acquisition of the new LTM 1750-9.1. “We are excited about the possibilities this crane offers. Furthermore, technical support, product quality and the excellent relationship we have with Liebherr are always factors that we take into account when making a decision for the manufacturer”.
