Bilder von Mario Jochmann
The following images I received from Mario Jochmann, here the translation of jis original inormatin text:
In August and September 2006, in Laasow, South Brandenburg, a large wind generator was erected which is, after the indications of the designer, the highest in the world. A consortium of companies (look at the second image with the construction board) set up thereby a new record in design, construction and assembling.
Dominating for the community of crane- and heavy-haulage-fans was an “old well known friend”, for such special jobs: the Liebherr LGD 1750 from Nolte/Hannover.
The photo series is the result of two visits on the construction yard in progressed stadiums of the construction and is so divided in two parts.
Many thanks at this place to SeeBa GmbH for the friendly information’s and the permission to publish the images.
Part 1: Assembling of lattice boom parts
