Wagenborg Nedlift goes green with Liebherr eco cranes



Wagenborg Nedlift has started off the year greener with three new Liebherr cranes at their yards in Groningen, Hengelo (the Netherlands) and Horstel (Germany).

The LTM 1150-5.3 was delivered to the yard in Hörstel in December. It is equipped with a mainboom measuring 66 metres. In this configuration, the crane has a lifting capacity of more than nine tonnes, suitable for heavy lifting works at great heights; making it capable of competing with models in the 200-tonne class. The 5-axle 150-tonne crane is equipped with a Stage V engine just like the other new Liebherr models, meaning a significant reduction in emissions.

The other newcomer, a mobile tower crane type MK73-3.1, is a twin of the MK73 delivered to the company last August. The 3-axle unit is an extremely compact and manoeuvrable mobile tower crane, making it particularly suitable for construction sites with limited space for manoeuvrability and for inner city locations. It can also be operated electrically, resulting in lifting works with zero emissions and noise pollution.

Adding to their mobile tower cranes fleet, Wagenborg Nedlift opted for the MK88-4.1. The 4-axle crane is also perfectly suited for construction sites with limited space for manoeuvrability or for public places, thanks to its compact size and variable outrigger options. The crane is equipped with various options for electric and therefore emission-free and virtually silent operation.

The delivery of the three Liebherr cranes is part of a multi-year investment programme in which Wagenborg Nedlift and Liebherr jointly focus on sustainability.
