Wagenborg Nedlift’s fleet of mobile tower cranes has expanded considerably recently. Once assembled, a number of these flexible and efficient cranes are suitable for fully electrical use. This is achieved using the power supply at the construction site. Efficient, sustainable and quiet!
As strong as ants yet 100% electric: the Wagenborg Nedlift compact cranes! These little powerhouses can be used in tight working locations where they supply surprising hoisting performance. Being emission-free, these compact cranes provide a solution when moving machines around company buildings, for example.
The forklift trucks used by the Wagenborg Nedlift installation specialists for installation work in company buildings, were recently replaced by emission-free electrically powered versions. Sustainable and quiet!
The new knuckle boom cranes are both an economic and sustainable addition to the Wagenborg Nedlift fleet. These extremely versatile powerhouses with a capacity of 92 tm and 165 tm are suitable for heavy duty hoisting at great heights and can also be used as aerial work platforms.
The knuckle boom cranes can be deployed electrically for both the hoisting and work platform functions. The cranes are fitted with a (removable) electro-hydraulic power pack, fed via high-voltage current. The truck on which the knuckle boom cranes are fitted has a modern Euro 6 engine.
When electrification is not yet an option, Wagenborg Nedlift opts for the most sustainable and modern technology when purchasing new equipment.
Recent investments include new Liebherr mobile telescopic cranes of the LTM1450-8.1 type (450 ton hoisting capacity) and the LTM1650-8.1 type (700 ton hoisting capacity). Both cranes feature ECOdrive and ECOmode technology, thus limiting fuel consumption and noise while driving and during hoisting work.
Besides purchasing sustainably innovative transport and hoisting equipment, Wagenborg Nedlift also takes a critical view of sustainable alternatives for any other equipment, such as recently the bamboo jacking beams. Traditionally, tropical hardwood (azobe) is used for jacking operations. However, azobe wood is a scarce natural commodity and therefore not a sustainable solution. Wagenborg Nedlift therefore searched for a better alternative.
After extensive research and testing, bamboo jacking beams were found to be the most effective, and considerable investments are therefore to be made in this sustainable and safe material.
