telescopic deck. When fully extended, the deck measures 72m in length, including the gooseneck. There is also the option to


add a rail-mounted blade tip lifting device. In combination with


Goldhofer’s pendular axle technology, the Ventum trailer is


able to transport the components over bridges, navigate tight bends and


roundabouts, and manoeuvre in confined construction sites. The hydraulic gooseneck can


be lifted and lowered to ensure that the rotor blades can negotiate tunnels and underpasses, said Goldhofer.


launched by the manufacturer in mid- 2018. With its 84 m long main boom, equipped with a derrick system, the LR 1800-1.0 completed a 560-tonne test lift at a 12 m radius.


In addition, six LTR 1060 telescopic crawler


cranes, which have a maximum lifting capacity of 60 tonnes, are scheduled to be delivered in February 2019. Over the last two years, Weldex has extended


its fleet with 23 crawler cranes from Liebherr, with lifting capacities ranging from 60 to 1,000 tonnes.
