50th Liebherr LTM11200-9.1

Liebherr has sold the 50th 1,200 tonne LTM 11200-9.1 All Terrain crane to Japanese heavy transport company Yamagata.

The crane will be delivered in September and will be used for a new service the company plans to offer erecting wind turbines. General manager Koichi Sambonsuge recently visited the Liebherr plant in Ehingen to inspect the new crane.

Unveiled at Bauma in 2007 the crane boasts a 100 metre telescopic boom which can be extended with lattice extensions and luffing jib to a maximum system length of 188 metres.

The 50 cranes delivered to so far have gone all over the world including seven to Germany, five to Mexico and four to Brazil, Yamagata unit will be the fifth in Japan.

The nine-axle crane will be by far the largest crane in the Yamagata fleet, the second-largest being a 250 tonne Liebherr LTM 1250 6.1 which was delivered earlier this year. The company's fleet includes four All Terrain and eight Rough Terrain cranes, primarily used for port handling work.

In addition to the 50 LTM11200s, Liebherr has delivered 15 crawler versions - the LTR 11200 - while another 11200 superstructure is mounted on a self-propelled jack-up barge for work on offshore wind turbines.
