Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 - Moh Seng

Moh Seng from Singapore (SG) has two units Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 in their fleet, both cranes are the largest cranes deployed by the company. This crane was during a weekend used to hoist modules for a data center.

The 8-axle undercarriage is powered by a Liebherr D9508 A7, an 8-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 500 kW (680 hp). The axles 1, 2, 4 and 5 are powered and the axles 1 to 4, 7 and 8 are steerable.

The outrigger base measures 10 x 9,6 meters.

In transit is the crane 21.4 meters long, 3 meters wide and 4 meters tall. The superstructure is powered by a Liebherr D936L A6, a 6-cylinder diesel engine with a power of 240 kW (326 hp).

Here was the crane used with the full counterweight of 165 tonnes, the counterweight has a 6.6 meter tailswing.

The crane was used with a luffing jib and sideways superlift. The beams of the guying system are each 42 degrees unfolded.

Here was the crane used wiith a 36.9 meter main boom and 42 meter luffing jib.

The luffing jib has a 21 meter base length and can be extended to a maximum length of 91 meters in steps of 7 meters. The yellow luffing jib sections belong to the other LTM 1500 of Moh Seng, that crane is yellow.

Multiple modules were lifted onto the roof.

One week later I found the crane again working on some other data center, here were steel components lifed for an expansion.

The main boom is here extended to a length of 78.6 meters and is extended by a fixed jib of 21 meters. The jib is adjustable in angle by an hydraulic system between 0 and 40 degrees. The beams of the guying system are here unfolded 10 degrees.

A very sharp crane of Moh Seng!
