The Liebherr 1000 EC-H 40 Litronic is at the construction of the new Erasmus Hospital in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The equipment managed to outscore its rivals during its transport and erection time at this site in the centre of Rotterdam. The transport sizes and weights have been so enhanced for this large crane that no special transport was required. The jib parts can be transported nested neatly inside the 1000-HC tower system to save space.
The practical erection technology used by the 1000 EC-H ensured that it was erected efficiently and safely. The slewing platform including the switchgear cabinet and cabin were placed on the tower in a single hoist. The ´Connect and Work´ quick-release fastening system which Liebherr offers as standard on all its tower cranes reduced erection times. The crane was fully erected and ready for use within four days with a hook height of 67.9 m and a radius of 60 m.
