Ehingen / Donau (Germany) January 2019 – Liebherr has received another major order from Al Faris Equipment Rentals. The crane rental company based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, has ordered a further 36 mobile cranes worth around 25 million euros. The order includes twelve cranes from the new Liebherr LRT rough terrain crane series. Four new LTM 1230-5-1 cranes have also been ordered.
Al Faris is one of Liebherr’s largest customers and currently has around 400 Liebherr cranes in its fleet. One year ago, the company placed a major order for 25 Liebherr mobile cranes worth around 18 million euros. The new order includes mobile cranes with lifting capacities between 50 and 300 tonnes. Al Faris is extremely satisfied with the 14 LRT rough terrain cranes which have already been delivered and has therefore ordered a further 12 of these machines. The 24 all-terrain mobile cranes also include crane models which have not featured in the fleet to date – two LTM 1090-4.2, four LTM 1230-5.1 and an LTC 1050-3.1 compact crane.
