400 tonner for Mammoet Deutschland
Mammoet Deutschland has taken delivery of a new 400 tonne Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1, twice the size of its previous largest crane.
The crane will go to work at its site in Ludwigshafen where Mammoet is a contract partner of BASF for mobile crane work in its chemical plants. Mammoet also plans to use the crane outside the chemicals industry, for example repairing wind turbines, erecting steel bridges and assembling prefabricated components and ordered the new crane with an 84 metre luffing jib..

Hans-Werner Springstein, manager crane work said: "The Liebherr LTM 1400-7.1 is the best in its class. We have had good experience with an identical crane which we bought in 2008. The crane has very good load capacities, a 60 metre telescopic boom and can be set up quickly at the site. The reducible ballast radius is perfect, particularly when operating in constricted sites in chemical plants. It can also be used very practically as a crane in the next lower load capacity class.”
