Interkran AG receives a new Demag

Swiss rental company Interkran AG, based in Lachau, has taken delivery of its new Demag AC 100-4L all terrain crane. It was chosen for its compact design, is 2.55m wide, associated with its capabilities, including the system length of 77m. The crane was delivered by Christian Kassner, Terex Cranes Senior Sales Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. This machine will be used to erect tower cranes and as a taxi crane.

“Thanks to the AC 100-4L’s large lifting capacity and new IC-1 Plus control system, we’ll even be able to forego the use of a second crane for certain lifts,” says Tony Teixeira, General Manager of Interkran AG.

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.
