Saudi Arabian crane and heavy haulage company Rezayat Sparrow has taken delivery of 16 new Liebherr cranes including 13 five axle All Terrains, one eight axle unit and two Rough Terrains.
The All Terrains include seven 110 tonne cranes - five LTM 1110-5.1s and two LTM 1110-5.2s - one 150 tonne LTM 1150-5.3, three 160 tonne LTM 1160-5.2, a 230 tonne LTM 1230-5.1, a 250 tonne LTM 1250-5.1 and finally a 700 tonne eight axle LTM 1650-8. The Rough Terrains, include a 90 tonne LRT 1090-2.1 and a 100 tonne LRT 1100-2.1.
The new cranes join add to the company’s existing fleet while the LTM 1650-8.1 becomes its new flagship crane.
General manager Raymond Cron said: "The order for the 16 cranes will support the performance of our overall fleet. These new LRT and LTM machines will greatly assist us in meeting our ongoing customer enquiries while maintaining a fleet of modern, reliable machines. They will mainly be used in the construction, petrochemical, mining and renewable energy industries. The higher capacity of the LTM 1650-8.1 is a logical complement to our two 500 tonne LTM 1500-8.1 cranes, which have proven to be the outstanding cranes in our fleet since 2004.”
“We considered other manufacturers, but the support and service we receive from Saudi Liebherr is first class and we wanted to feel confident that we would have reliable support for our new investments.”
