Cranes | Hydraulic Equipment | Aerial Devices
Liebherr-Werk Eignen GmbH
Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH manufactures Liebherr Mobile and Crawler Cranes for the wind industry. The economical, high-performance cranes from Liebherr have been used for decades in the construction of wind power plants. The cranes are available in various load capacity classes and are precisely tailored to the needs
of the wind power industry. Liebherr faces the development of increasingly powerful installa- tions and increasingly high towers by producing optimized cranes and new boom systems reach- ing especially high carrying capacities. Telescopic mobile cranes drive on public roads and can therefore be transported economically. Lattice boom crawler cranes offer high load capacity and lifting height. They can drive with a full load.
Mammoet’s heavy lifting and transport expertise optimizes wind projects, specifically addressing O&M and repower requirements, and working with manufacturers and contractors on new construc- tion projects. Their wind equipment services team brings projects to a safe completion and improves project efficiency by utilizing their experience and large fleet of equipment.

Economic Wind Development Region
Kansas Department of Commerce
Kansas is ranked #2 in wind potential and
has 5110MW of wind farms in operation and 1000MW in new projects announced. Kansas wind is cost effective due to high capac-
ity factors and is attractive to out-of-state off-takers, which are purchasing a significant percentage of the wind energy produced in Kansas. Located in the heart of the wind corri- dor, Kansas provides access to key regions
for wind farm development and a beneficial operating environment for developers, wind turbine component manufacturers, logistics, and other service providers. The team at Kansas Department of Commerce can assist companies in finding the ideal site for their operations.
