Spanish contractor Grúas Leman targets wind and power with new cranes



Spanish contractor Grúas Leman has expanded its fleet with the purchase of two new powerful Liebherr cranes, an LTM 1650-8.1 and an LR 1700-1.0.

The 700 tonne crawler crane becomes the company’s new flagship and the main areas of work for the two new cranes will mainly be in wind power and the petrochemicals industry.

The LR 1700-1.0, which will supplement the range of lattice boom cranes at Grúas Leman, will start its working life on projects in Germany where it is due to install turbines with hob heights of up to 165 metres and with a rating of over 5 MW.

The first job for the LTM 1650-8.1 is at the crude oil reception facilities at the Port of Tarragona. After this, it will undertake maintenance work on wind turbines in the central peninsula.

Spanish company Grúas Leman SA was founded in 1980 and carries out projects throughout Spain as well as in Portugal, France and Germany. It provides crane rental and hoisting services.
