Besides, the crane can self load and unload its superstructure and self fit its crawlers, thus making it ideal for working in rural and altogether remote areas in India, where getting skilled manpower is quite critical. The crane comes with special attachments, making it ideal for wind mill construction projects.” Liebherr handed two LR 1600/2 two Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited for construction of 800 MW power projects.
