Mexican crane company ESEASA has ordered a further five Liebherr Rough Terrain cranes along with two All Terrains.
The latest order includes two 90 tonne LRT 1090-2.1 plus three of the new 130 tonne LRT 1130-2.1 Rough Terrains, plus a 120 tonne LTM1120-4.1 and a LTM 250 tonne 1250-5.1.
The LRT 1090-2.1 will join the five LRT 1090-2.1 that the company took in March along with two LRT 1100-2.1. The all new 130 tonne LRT 1130-2.1 was unveiled at Bauma and features a seven section 60 metre main boom, which Liebherr claims is the longest on any two axle Rough Terrain crane. A 10.8 metre to 19 metre bi-fold swingaway extension with offsets of up to 40 degrees can be extended with a seven metre insert for a maximum tip height of around 88 metres.
Operations director Aldo Santos said: "We have been buying Liebherr cranes for a long time and have hardly had any problems. The units are sophisticated and retain their value very well. We appreciate the similar operating principle across all crane types.
Founded in 2014, EAEASA IS based in Mexico City and works mostly on wind power or oil & gas related projects. The company runs a fleet of 400 cranes and employs 800. The fleet includes a 1,200 tonne LTM 11200-9.1 All Terrain, LTR 11200 telescopic crawler and Liebherr’s largest crawler crane, the 3,000 tone LR 13000.
