A Liebherr LR 10000 set up a silo for concrete mixer plant in Switzerland

The Liebherr crawler crane LR 10000 operated by the abnormal transport company  Emil Egger AG, settled a silo of 470 cubic meters capacity in Oberiet, a Swiss municipality next to the Austrian border. The construction site had some space constraints, preventing to use the jib extension.

« The benefit of our solution was that using the LR 11000 for this job meant that a derrick jib was not required as would have been the case if a 500 tonne crawler crane had been used. That would have presented a massive problem as a result of the extremely constricted space available », explained Michael Egger, Director of Emil Egger AG.
