The new SL-10 system adds 15 metres to the main boom lift height and when combined with 12 metre fixed jib takes the maximum hook height to over 160 metres at which it can still lift 71 tonnes.

A more direct comparison with the standard boom system shows an increase in capacity from 77 to 92 tonnes at a hook height of 147 metres. The boom kit allows the crane to erect the latest generation of wind turbines with tower heights of up to 150 metres. The derrick system has also been improved to allow the longer main boom and jib combinations to be erected.  Continue reading “Boom upgrade kit for Liebherr LR1600/2 in Wind Turbine construction” »

First storage tanks put onto foundation at Vopak Vlaardingen storage terminal

During the past months, a lot of work has been done at Vopak Vlaardingen tank storage terminal. A huge new tank storage park of no less than 52 tanks will be constructed there. This meant a lot of project preparation, engineering & design, civil works, construction of new foundation and of course fabrication of the new storage tanks and piping modules

1At the Vopak Vlaardingen project, Wagenborg Nedlift is responsible for the transport and positioning of the new storage tanks. Last week, the first tanks arrived at the quayside of Vopak. This first shipment from the fabrication shop in Willebroek, Belgium was organized per water transport with an inland water vessel of no less than 135 meters long. At the Vlaardingen quayside, Wagenborg Nedlift’s 500 tons crawler crane was positioned to offload the 112 tons heavy ‘rusk tins’ from the ship onto SPMT trailers. Via a specially constructed temporary road, the transport took off to the new tank park, where a 750 tons crawler crane lifted the precious cargo from the trailer and carefully positioned the tank onto its new foundation.

A 1,350 tonne Liebherr LR-11350, crawler crane has tipped over as it tried to move across soft ground while fully rigged. The unit, the first of this new crane to be shipped, was originally delivered as the LR-11250 to a Chinese company for power station and petrochemical work. 
The model designation was changed after the later production models were renamed following conclusion of the full test programme.
