Kuwait's ILC orders two Liebherr crawler cranes
The order of two LR 1300 units marks a fleet expansion at Integrated Logistics Company, Kuwait's largest crane hire firm
Kuwait's Integrated Logistics Company (ILC) has ordered two Liebherr crawler cranes, marking a fleet expansion at the country's largest crane hire firm.
Liebherr said ILC had ordered two LR 1300 crawler cranes with a derrick boom each.
Each crane is fitted with a 62m-long main boom, and a luffing jib of 77m.
The use of the derrick boom, with a suspended counterweight, allows the cranes to have "considerably higher lifting capacity".
Liebherr said the cranes were designed for operation in refineries, and would be delivered with external air-conditioning that would cool the cabin "even when the engine is switched off".
The cranes will be delivered this May, Liebherr said in a statement.
