Dutch international heavy lift crane rental company Wagenborg Nedlift has formulated a fleet replacement programme with Liebherr, in order to make the fleet more environmentally friendly and sustainable over the next few years.
The programme has kicked off with the delivery of a 450 tonne LTM1450-8.1 All Terrain, while a new 700 tonne LTM1650-8.1 is on order for delivery shortly, along with two new three-axle MK73-3.1 mobile self-propelled tower cranes.
Wagenborg has an option on 25 further Liebherr cranes for delivery starting this year and running through to 2025, all of which will replace older cranes in the fleet. All new cranes will be equipped with Stage V diesels.
Wagenborg Nedlift managing director Gerard Bastiaansen said: “This collaboration is testament to our far-sighted view to take up the challenge of reducing our ‘footprint’ together with our suppliers. By doing this, we not only choose the material that best meets our customers’ needs, but we also reduce a significant amount of nitrogen and CO2 in the process.”
