Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH, which specialises in manufacturing mobile and crawler cranes, delivered the first set of mobile cranes to Sankyu Saudi Arabia
Sankyu, which is a specialist in plant construction, operational support and logistics services, will mainly use the LTM 1050-3.1 and LTM 1160-5.2 for maintenance work in refineries and other industries.
Mahdi Al Salem, deputy branch manager of Sankyu Saudi Arabia said, "To grow our business in Saudi Arabia and live up to our vision and mission of being number one in mechanical industry maintenance, we need to rely on strong customer service and products with a high level of safety. The new cranes from Liebherr are a perfect fit for our support team. With Liebherr, we can rely on competent and fast service should the cranes ever break down. Crane operations in refineries and other sensitive industries are very challenging."
The mobile cranes have a better price-performance ratio and are more reliable, said Sankyu. The 50-tonne LTM 1050-3.1 mobile crane and the LTM 1160-5.2 with a maximum lifting capacity of 180 tonnes, combined with special equipment for working in different industries, precisely meet the requirements of major Saudi clients such as the oil production companies. With their long telescopic booms and high lifting capacities in their respective crane classes, the Liebherr mobile cranes are the perfect choice for the jobs planned by Sankyu.
