Wasel spends €60 million with Liebherr

German crane rental company Wasel has placed an order for €60 million of new Liebherr cranes.

The order, confirmed at Bauma, includes 50 tonne LTC 1050-3.1E all-electric City type All Terrains, an 800 tonne nine axle LTM 1750-9.1 All Terrain, 130 tonne LRT 1130-2.1 Rough Terrain cranes, along with a 700 tonne LR 1700-1.0 and a 1,000 tonne LR 11000 crawler cranes. The new cranes are part of an ongoing fleet modernisation programme following the company’s acquisition by Hagedoorn last year.

The two new crawler cranes add to previously delivered units in the Wasel fleet. Managing director Matthias Wasel, who manages the business with his brother Thomas said: "Homogeneity in operator application and workshop operation, as well as ensuring trouble free and efficient use by the customer, are really important to us. With the replacement and expansion investments, we want to contribute to the ongoing modernisation of the equipment fleet, taking into account sustainability aspects with regard to the emissions standard."
