Northwest Completes First Project in US with new Liebherr LTM1650-8.1

The Northwest team utilized the new Liebherr LTM1650-8.1 Mobile Hydraulic Crane to exchange a gearbox on an 80 meter Wind Turbine in Latham, KS. It took working day and night to complete the first project in North America with the LTM1650-8.1. The mobile hydraulic crane was configured with 92ft of luffing jib and 109,400 lbs. of counterweight to complete the lift. The new LTM1650-8.1 has an extensive list of modern features. These features paired with the extensive experience our crews have working in the Renewable Energy Industry make Northwest a safe and efficient solution for your Wind Turbine Maintenance projects. Northwest Crane Service L.L.C. and the new Liebherr LTM1650-8.1 were featured in the March 2021 Issue of Crane Hotline Magazine. To read more, follow the link below.
