The Sarens PSG joint venture set up in Scotland by PSG Marine & Logistics and Belgian international heavy lift specialists Sarens, has taken delivery of an 800 tonne Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 All Terrain crane.
The nine axle LTM 1750-9.1 travels with its 52 metre main boom and once on site up to 91 metres of lattice extensions can be added along with the Y-guying Superlift system to achieve a maximum tip height of just under 160 metres with the main boom extended to 49 metres, a 19 metre extension between the boom nose and jib pivot point and topped by the full 91 metres of luffing jib. The maximum radius is 116 metres at which it can handle 1.81 tonnes. The capacity on the fully telescoped main boom is just under 100 tonnes - or 208 tonnes with the Y-Guy system installed.
The new crane is currently in paint, but once in the fleet will help provide heavy lift and transport solutions to the renewable energy sector throughout Scotland.
Managing director Steve Clark said: “We are delighted to add this machine to our growing fleet of heavy cranes. The LTM 1750 is one of the most powerful and in demand cranes on the market, due to its unrivalled heavy lift capacity and extensive use in onshore windfarm construction where we see an exciting pipeline of opportunities for this machine.”
Sarens PSG was established last year as a joint venture between port marshalling and logistics specialist PSG Marine & Logistics. It operates from PSG’s base in the Port of Cromarty Firth, Invergordon, and offers heavy lift and transport solutions, load in/out, assembly and port marshalling services to clients in the renewable energy sector.
