500t Liebherr for Dietmar Flossdorf

German crane rental and wind turbine service company Dietmar Flossdorf has taken delivery of a 500 tonne, eight axle Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 All Terrain crane.

The company collected the new crane from the Liebherr plant in Ehingen, their first eight axle crane, it replaces a seven year old 350 tonne six axle LTM 1350-6.1. The new crane will extend the type of work that Flossdorf can manage with its own equipment. It provides additional capacity, particularly for the wind power sector where it will primarily be used for repairs and repowering.

Operations manager Stephan Wassmuth said: "The new crane represents the perfect next step into the large crane class. As a result of the new challenges we face in the wind power industry, the seven year old LTM 1350-6.1 had reached the limits of its capacity. The new 500 tonne crane will give us more opportunities to tackle repair work and repowering jobs on wind turbines which will mean that the crane will extend our range of services. We plan to use the LTM 1500-8.1 throughout Germany in the wind power sector, but also for other lifting work.”
