Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 in explosive use

Two sites from a single location whilst preparing explosives to demolish a coal-fired power station in Lünen, North Rhine-Westphalia, the Liebherr mobile crane was working on another site at the same time due to high time pressure. Fitted with a luffing lattice jib with a maximum length of 91 metres, the new LTM 1650-8.1 from Bergheim-based crane contractor Wasel GmbH had to hoist explosives experts up to a platform on the chimney of the decommissioned power plant at a height of 140 metres. Façade components on the boilerhouse also had to be removed at the same time using radii of up to 80 metres.
