Brazilian contractor Montcalm Montagens Industriais has taken delivery of a 250 tonne Liebherr LTM 1250-5.1 All Terrain crane.
The five axle crane features a 60 metre main boom plus a 36 metre bi-fold swingaway extension which can be extended to 50 metres with inserts and offset hydraulically by up to 45 degrees. The LTM 1250-5.1 is due to start work at the Sergipe Thermoelectric Power Plant located in Barra dos Coqueiros on the east coast of Brazil.
Managing director Paulo Simonsen said: “High quality, durable machines like Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes are very important to us. Our LTM 1200/1 built in 2002 is still very reliable and powerful today. We have an honest, objective yet close relationship with Liebherr – for both technical and administrative matters. Furthermore, we can always rely on obtaining fast assistance from its service personnel.”
Montcalm Montagens Industriais is headquartered in São Paulo and employs 3,000. The company’s fleet also includes Liebherr crawler cranes, including a 400 tonne LR 1400/2, two 220 tonne LTR 1220s and a 100 tonne LTR 1100.
