TCUK have extended their existing fleet with the purchase of a Liebherr 180tn Mobile Crane which is not only a great asset to the business and over all group but will also allow us to comprehensively undertake the erection and dismantle on current live projects.
The new mobile is equipped with Vario Base Technology, this offers enhanced lifting capacity in comparison to mobile cranes of the same size.
Furthermore, the outrigger set up will enable this mobile crane to operate in far smaller spaces if necessary, more akin to spaces which would restrict the use of a regular mobile cranes of up to 130 tn.
Whilst the mobile crane will be employed for the erection and dismantle of TCUK hires, it will also be hired out externally to other companies, this is something we have had some keen interest in to date given we only took delivery of the crane a few weeks ago.
The mobile crane may also be used to offer lifting solutions on GCL projects where Tower Cranes are not yet in place. Further to this and at the discretion of the Board of Directors, benefits may be found in supplementing existing projects where craneage is in place but where a programme opportunity may be evident.
With this in mind, the mobile crane may make an appearance at a project you are involved in soon
