Liebherr electric hydraulic crane expands Mammoet zero-emission lifting options
Mammoet has added a Liebherr LTC 1050-3.1E to its fleet. This is Mammoet's first electric hydraulic crane. The lifting movements of the LTC 1050-3.1E can be powered electrically with full performance, generating zero emissions on site. Mammoet says that adding the Liebherr electric hydraulic crane to its fleet is a significant step towards reducing whole-project carbon emissions.
The crane can be plugged into a 32A-rated, 63A-rated, or 125A-rated supply on site. This means that there is no limitation to the number of working hours it can deliver. Because the crane is electric, noise during operation is reduced to a minimum, improving safety on site.
"Cranes in the 50-tonne range are ideal to serve as a test bed for innovative technologies, as such equipment is at work around the clock for Mammoet," said Peter van Oostrom, global projects and assets director at Mammoet. "This allows us to offer new technologies to the largest possible number of customers, and for it to be put through its paces, demonstrating its viability in live industrial environments quickly."
The crane will enter Mammoet's fleet in the Netherlands, working on a variety of projects in the civil and energy sectors. All lifting operations will be delivered via electric power. The crane is fully compatible with HVO fuel products, which offer a 90 percent reduction in CO2 compared to diesel.
"The crane will complement our existing mobile fleet, offering customers that wish reduce the carbon impact of lifting an attractive option," continued van Oostrom. "It will also provide Mammoet with greater flexibility when taking on jobs in small physical spaces, particularly indoors, where its zero-emission capability is particularly important."
