New Liebherr cranes for Brazilian industrial construction company

Brazilian industrial construction company Milplan purchases four new Liebherr cranes

Brazilian machinery rental company Milplan has taken possession of four new Liebherr cranes as part of the company’s fleet expansion project.

The two new Liebherr LRT 1100-2.1 rough terrain cranes and the two new LTR 1100 telescopic crawler cranes will be put to use in the mining, steel, energy, and oil & gas industries. In their respective industries, they will complete work in construction, electromechanical assembly, pipeline construction, and maintenance shutdowns.

Completing its first deal with Liebherr, Milplan’s CEO Leonardo Mendes cited the “availability, quick set-up times, and maximum safety” of the machines as a key reason for purchasing them.

“We were looking for versatile and powerful cranes that would bring agility and strength to our operations,” he said. “That’s why we opted for a telescopic crawler crane and two RT cranes.”

Liebherr’s LRT series has been developed with safety at the forefront of the cranes’ operations. With Liebherr’s VarioBase outrigger technology, these cranes can achieve higher load capacities with variable outrigger positions while loads are constantly monitored to ensure operational safety.

“The Liebherr rough terrain cranes have been designed with operational safety in mind,” said Rene Porto, Divisional Manager of mobile and crawler cranes at Liebherr Brasil. “Equipped with tires suitable for challenging terrains and using Liebherr’s telescopic boom technology, the LRT cranes provide a practical, safe, and efficient solution for operations that require mobility and power.”

Further to its goal of achieving quick set-up times and providing versatile machinery, Milplan’s new 100-tonne telescopic crawlers provide exactly that. Thriving in assembly and maintenance operations that need quick-set up times, the crane can also transport lifted loads, making its operations agile.

“The versatility of an LTR is undeniable,” said Porto. “In addition to combining the best features of crawler cranes and telescopic booms, this equipment is particularly easy to transport: its entire design takes into account every possible transportation situation around the world.”

Milplan has over 40 years of experience in industrial construction, employing more than 5,000 people and a fleet of over 25 cranes.
