Turkish crane and access rental company Servet Coşkun Vinç has taken delivery of a new 120 tonne Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1.
The four axle crane features a 66 metre main boom, VarioBase outrigger set up, VarioBallast adjustable counterweight and Hill-Start aid. The crane will be used on a variety of work including tower crane assembly, steel erection and lifts in the local refineries. The company has also ordered a 450 tonne LTM 1450-8.1 and 230 tonne LTM 1230-5.1 for delivery early next year.
Owner Sedat Coşkun said: “We spent a long time looking for a mobile crane with four axles and finally decided on the 120 tonne Liebherr unit since it is not only the most powerful in the class, but also has the longest boom. The lifting capacity on the long boom, the strong line pull and the small support base of the LTM 1120-4.1 are advantages for us here as are the crane’s compact dimensions which are ideal for the narrow roads and confined working areas.”
Servet Coşkun was established around 40 years ago and runs a 25 unit fleet that includes All Terrain, truck mounted and loader cranes from 12 tonnes to its 500 tonne flagship - a Demag AC500. It also operates a diverse truck mounted aerial lift fleet with working heights from 25 metres to a 75 metre Ruthmann T750HF. Its telehandler fleet includes 17 metre fixed frame models from Manitou and Genie.
The company employs around 55 over several locations - two in Istanbul, one in Anatolia and the other on the European side of the Bosphorus - while another is in Corlu west of Istanbul and halfway to Tekirdağ.
