KGE with transport of heavy Liebherr crane

Oct 14, 2021

In September, KGE Baltic was nominated to transport a heavy crane (Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2) plus spare parts and equipment from a Tengiz jobsite in Kazakhstan to Dordrecht, the Netherlands.

The dimensions of the crane are 13.39 x 2.55 x 4.00m with a weight of 48,000kg. KGE arranged a low-bed trailer with ramps for the crane and the spare parts including counterweights were loaded in a FTL truck.

The heavy crane was moved with a multimodal option (road-sea-road) via Saint Petersburg Port and the standard truck was moved by road via Lithuania. KGE comment that the main challenge was delivering both loads to the customs in the Netherlands simultaneously but due to their careful planning, both arrived on the same day.
