Darcy Pacheco boosts heavy lift capacity
Brazilian cargo handling and special transport company Darcy Pacheco Soluções de Peso has increased its heavy lift capacity with the addition of a new Liebherr crane. The company received its newest mobile crane, the 800-tonne-capacity giant LTM 1750-9.1 in June already.
The 9-axle-crane has already has already jumped into action for maintenance works at a thermoelectric plant in the northeast of the country. Darcy Pacheco ordered the heavy-duty crane with telescopic boom extension and 91 metre luffing jib.
Industrial maintenance increasingly demands equipment capable of operating in more restricted areas. What could easily be done with crawler cranes, due to their high lifting capacity at large radii, now often needs machines that are more compact and powerful at the same time. The LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane will operate mainly in the maintenance of industrial plants, such as petrochemicals, pulp industry and maintenance of wind farms.
Darcy Pacheco’s LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane arrived in Brazil equipped with the Liebherr VarioBase system. With this variable supporting system, crane work is secured via the LICCON control system even when the crane outriggers are not fully extended, for example in restricted areas. The 800-tonne crane also has ECOdrive: The additional eco mode delivers enhanced drive properties which both save fuel and reduce noise.
