Russian construction contractor Titan-2 has taken delivery of the fourth 3,000 tonne Liebherr LR 13000 crawler crane from Liebherr Russland.
The crane features up to 120 metres of main boom and 126 metres of luffing jib to offer a maximum boom and jib combination/system length of 246 metres. The standard superstructure counterweight ranges from 400 to 750 tonnes, while a suspended superlift counterweight system of up to 1,500 tonnes is available with a 54 metre derrick boom. The company claims the LR 13000 is also the only crawler crane in its size class which can work without a suspended superlift counterweight.
Liebherr’s Willo Liebherr, Sophie Albrecht and Christoph Kleiner were all present at the handover of the LR 13000, which will be used in the construction of a nuclear power plant in Turkey over the next 10 years.
The LR 13000 is the most powerful conventional crawler crane on the market and is the fourth to be sold since it was introduced, with Mammoet taking delivery of the first unit in 2012 – see:[https://vertikal.net/en/news/story/14761/mammoet-takes-first-liebherr-lr-13000](Mammoet takes first LR 13000).
