Linden Comansa returns to large capacity cranes

1 Dec 11 Tower crane producer Linden Comansa has resumed series production of high capacity flat-top tower cranes for the first time since the 1970s.

As of today (1 December 2011),Linden Comansa is offering  the LC 3000 flat-top series, comprising two models: the 30 LC 1100 and the 30 LC 1400.

Each model comes in three versions with different maximum load capacity: 32t, 48t and 64t.

Prior to its acquisition by Comansa of Spain, Swedish crane maker Linden used to offer such large cranes in the 1970s. And in the 1990s, Linden Comansa took some special orders for cranes with maximum loads up to 60t. But Linden Comansa says that the new design of the LC3000 series makes it feasible to produce such large cranes with shorter manufacturing and delivery times and at lower prices.

The cranes of the LC3000 family are erected with tower sections that are 4m wide and 5.5m high, specially designed for this series. Maximum freestanding height is 88.8m. With just two tie frames, they can reach 198.3m in height.

Greater free standing heights can be achieved using alternative 5.5m wide tower sections.

The cranes use a 200kW frequency controlled hoist with drum capacity for 1,450m of wire rope.
