The crane will be used for assembly and industrial maintenance operations, primarily in the chemical, steel, mining and pulp industries.

The company said it chose the 5 axle crane due to its high reliability, strong lifting capacities and technologies such as the VarioBallast system. This system allows a quick change between small ballast radius for constricted job sites and a large ballast radius for maximum lifting capacities.

The crane also features Liebherr’s VarioBase, ECOmode and ECOdrive technologies.

“We have chosen the 250 tonne model intending to increase the load capacity and lifting height of our equipment in this crane class, meeting the needs of our customers”, said Juliano Martins, director of Sistermi.

“Our customers have high expectations when it comes to operational safety. That is why Liebherr cranes are immensely popular with them, as they are equipped with the well-known technologies needed to ensure high safety in operations,” added Martins.
