Liebherr LTR cranes are crawler cranes with telescopic booms. They feature short set-up times and particularly high flexibility in use. Fitted with a telescopic boom, they do not need space to assemble and erect the boom. Since crawler cranes are not supported, they can be fast relocated on the job site and are again immediately ready for operation. Another benefit is that they can march with full load, giving a distinct advantage over mobile cranes.
Liebherr has delivered a new LTR 1220 telescopic crawler crane to NCC Ltd. Hyderabad for its Nagpur metro project. There the crane's is used for lifting of girders. With the crane unique feature of pick and carry capacity, it is an ideal equipment for girder placements. Liebherr is convinced that the use of such a crane for the first time in India, will give a big opening to this technology.
The LTR 1220 comes with double grouser crawler pads, which are useful in off-road operation. For operation inside a hall or on the road, polyamide plates can be installed on the double grouser crawler pads to protect the surface of the floor. Fitting of these polyamide plates takes a few minutes.
NCC is associated with Liebherr since 2010. They operate already a Liebherr 400 tonne crawler crane and a 200 tonne mobile crane in various projects. NCC contributes to India’s progress through landmark infrastructure projects which demonstrate far-reaching impact, even beyond the realm of construction.
