Recently revealing its purchase, the company made the acquisition to replace a 110-tonne mobile crane in its fleet, saying that it intends to deploy its newest asset for the assembly of precast concrete elements.

“With the LTM 1160-5.2, we are closing a gap in our crane portfolio. It fits perfectly into our range,” said Berres’ Managing Director, Dorothea Berres. “With the new crane, we are replacing an older 110-tonne crane.”

The LTM 1160-5.2 has a 62m telescopic boom and can reach lifting heights of up to 99m with lattice extensions. The five-axle vehicle is designed for a maximum load capacity of 180 tonnes, and, with the VarioBallast system, the crane thrives in scenarios requiring high lifting capacities with a large ballast radius as well as tight construction sites with a small radius. The variable stabiliser base VarioBase available as standard enables safe use on confined construction sites and offers even higher load-bearing capacities – especially in the working areas directly above the stabilisers.

Berres offers a wide variety of crane services across multiple industries, such as industrial buildings, residential construction, wind turbines or mechanical and plant engineering, moving loads wherever construction takes place – hence why the crane represents an apt fit to its fleet.

“We attach real importance to state-of-the-art technical equipment, expertise and adherence to deadlines,” said Dorothea Berres. “That’s why we decided to invest in a new 180-tonne mobile crane, the LTM 1160-5.2 from Liebherr. This is a crane with innovative technology such as the VarioBallast adjustable ballast radius. Liebherr also offers reliable and safe products.”
