Biggest Hoisting Crane of Europe

This hoisting crane currently operates at the project of Rotterdam Central District, an urban development at the hart of the Port City of the Netherlands. It's being used to assemble the steel constructions which will later become the immense roof of the multi-user public transport station in Rotterdam.

The Liebherr 1750 stands 80 meters high and has a span of 150 meters, thus being the largest hoisting crane in Europe. It needed fifty lorries to bring toghether all te components of the Liebherr. A special fundament was made consisting of 70 concrete poles to carry and spread the weight.
