Schuch continues to heavily invest, receiving six 800-tonne mobile cranes from Liebherr last year, including two LTM 1090-4.2, two LTM 1150-5.3, one LTM 1230-5.1, and one LTM 1750-9.1. Currently, more 800-tonne cranes are on order. This year, the Schuch Group will receive an additional five cranes from Liebherr including the LTM 1090-4.2, LTM 1120-4.1, LTM 1250-5.1, LTM 1650-8.1, and LTM 1750-9.1.

Tim Schuch, one of the group’s managing directors, explains: “The new cranes with lifting capacities of up to 250 tonnes will replace the older vehicles in our fleet. The larger cranes will expand our capabilities.” Schuch is currently focusing on the renewable energy sector. “We will primarily use our new large cranes for the assembly of wind turbines, worldwide. Especially in this class, we are adapting to the constantly growing requirements of our global clientele through these new investments.” 

Schuch highlights the 800-tonne upgrade of the LTM 1750-9.1, which has already been delivered, and the 700-tonne LTM 1650-8.1 which has been ordered: “Our key decision-making criteria were the high lifting capacities, even with a longer boom, and the high flexibility during erection and dismantling of the two Liebherr large cranes.” Additional orders for 90-800 tonne Liebherr mobile cranes are already planned, with deliveries continuing into 2024.
