A Liebherr LR 11000 crawler crane was in operation for the first time at a refinery in Romania. One of the first models of the new 1000-tonne crane was transported from the Liebherr plant in Ehingen direct to the Petrom refinery in Plojesti, near the Romanian capital Bucharest. Its compact design proved its worth on narrow refinery sites and it can also carry a weight of 335 tonne at a hook height of 80 m. The job in the Romanian refinery exploited several of the features of the new machine. Existing system parts drastically reduced the usage radius of the LR 11000. The erection of the lattice boom and luffing jib also proved to be difficult.
