Whyte Crane orders 21 Liebherrs

Whyte Crane Hire has a substantially Liebherr-made fleet and having bought four cranes from the German manufacturer in early 2017, ordered 21 more at the end of the year.

The first two, a 300-tonne class LTM 1300-6.2 mobile crane and a compact 50-tonne LTC 1050-3.1, were delivered at the end of November.

A second LTC 1050-3.1 compact mobile crane is due to be delivered soon. The rest of the order is for mobile cranes including two LTM 1040-2.1s, three LTM 1050-3.1s, five LTM 1060-3.1s, three LTM 1070-4.2s, two LTM 1090-4.1s, an LTM 1095-5.1, an LTM 1130-5.1 and a 450-tonne class LTM 1450-8.1, which will be the first of this model in Scotland.

A number of the cranes ordered are to enable Whyte Crane Hire to fulfil a contract that the company has won to undertake work at the Ineos refinery in Grangemouth, which is Scotland’s only crude oil refinery.

Managing director Mark Syme said: ‘We have won work through our ability to provide good service to our clients. An important part of that good service is our maintenance of a modern fleet and this latest investment is in line with that ongoing strategy. We continue to invest in Liebherr cranes in particular because they are both innovative and reliable with a backup service that is unrivalled in the industry.’
