WASEL places 60 million euro Liebherr order
WASEL, a new subsidiary of the Hagedorn Group, has placed a large crane order with Liebherr.
The order includes two new cranes, the LTC 1050-3.1E, as well as the LRT 1130-2.1, which was recently unveiled. The largest cranes in the package include the Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 mobile crane and the Liebherr LR 1700-1.0 and LR 11000 crawler cranes.
“Homogeneity in operator application and workshop operation, as well as ensuring trouble-free and efficient use by the customer, are really important to us. With the replacement and expansion investments, we want to contribute to the ongoing modernisation of the equipment fleet, taking into account sustainability aspects with regard to the emissions standard,” states Managing Director Matthias Wasel.
The LTC 1050-3.1E with electric drive has both a conventional drive and an electric motor. This reduces CO2 emissions and meets the requirements of “zero emission” construction sites. The Liebherr LRT 1130-2.1 rough terrain crane has the highest lifting capacity of 130 tonnes and the longest telescopic boom of all 2-axle rough terrain cranes in the world.
The LTM 1750-9.1, an LR 1700-1.0 and an LR 11000 cranes are specially designed to meet the increasing requirements of wind turbine assembly. “Overall, German industry is facing immense investments in plants and facilities in order to be able to produce in a climate-neutral way by 2045. Remodelling requires the right equipment,” said Thomas Hagedorn, managing partner of the Hagedorn Group of Companies.
