18 Liebherrs for Saudi
By Niamh Marriott08 December 2022
Gulf Haulage Heavy Lift Company (GHHL) signed a contract at Bauma for the delivery of 18 mobile cranes.
The new cranes will expand the Saudi Arabian crane and transport company’s fleet of cranes between 100 and 300 tonnes lifting capacity.
GHHL said the high quality and the good after-sales service were important decision-making criteria for ordering from Liebherr.
Growing mobile demand
“The requirements in the Saudi market are growing and we are seeing a growing demand for mobile cranes, especially in the class between 100 and 300 tonnes,” said company chairman Hussein Ali Al Anazy.
The order placed with Liebherr comprises six LRT 1100-2.1 rough-terrain cranes, six LTM 1120-4.1 all-terrain cranes, four LTM 1150-5.3 models and two LTM 1300-6.2 cranes.
Until now, GHHL’s primary focus has been on large and lattice boom cranes.
“The mobile cranes we have ordered will expand our new class of cranes, which will complement our heavy-duty cranes and enable us to offer complete crane solutions for our customers,” said Sanjay Pachisia, CEO of GHHL.
GHHL uses its cranes in the renewable energy sector, infrastructure and construction projects, and in oil, gas and the petrochemical industries. The GHHL group of companies with over 500 employees operates more than 90 cranes.
The largest Liebherr crane is a 750-tonne LR 1750 crawler crane.
