The design of the Liebherr pipelayers is orientated around the application requirements of modern pipeline building sites.

A comprehensible control with only two joysticks for all travel and steering movements, as well as actuation of the boom reduce the possibility of faulty operation. The tracks of the hydrostatic travel drive, with continuous power to both tracks, and without switch procedures, allow simple traversal of steep slopes. As the travel drive is wear-free, and also works as an operating brake, a reinforced braking system is not needed, even in mountainous terrain.

Location: Chernobyl – Ukraine
Equipment used: CC 8800-1
Sarens participated in the New Safe Confinement Project at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukraine. The purpose of the project is to fully contain the damaged nuclear reactor building and prevent the reactor complex from leaking further radioactive material into the environment for the next 100 years. Unit 4 of the reactor building will be encased in a massive arched steel structure.
Before this could happen, the old chimney had to be removed with the help of Sarens’ CC8800-1 in its almost full configuration. After the stabilization of each of the 7 tube parts, the chimney could be removed by sections, each weighing approximately 55t. Any miscalculations could cause a cloud of radioactive dust, but this challenging operation was brought to a successful end. The complete old chimney was removed safely. SOURCE: Sarens

Very carefull operator and trucker loading this machine because this platform is small (9.8ft)
Liebherr has announced a very successful first day at Conexpo, but what attracted our intention was the aerial view taken by a sophisticated remote controlled drone ‘aircraft’, giving a very attractive view the Gold Lot from the Liebherr end.
