Select Plant Hire has further strengthened its heavy lift capabilities with the arrival of a Liebherr LTM 1200 200t mobile telescopic unit, marking its 14th crane delivery in the past 12 months. 

Select has invested in a substantial upgrade of its mobile and crawler fleet, with six crawler and eight mobile cranes delivered new in the UK from worldwide lifting leader Liebherr. Coupled with the significant ongoing investment in its Terex tower crane fleet, Lifting Solutions is the fastest growing part of Select’s UK business.

With one of the longest telescopic booms currently available in the 5-axle class, Select’s latest LTM 1200 offers an ideal combination of extensive reach and outstanding lifting capacities.  The design incorporates a seven-section, 72-metre-long telescopic boom which can be extended with a 7-metre lattice jib and a swing-away jib up to 36 metres in length.

Its arrival will help satisfy Select’s demand for high quality mobile lifting solutions at construction and infrastructure projects across the UK. “Continuing investment means that Select has one of the youngest and highest quality lifting fleets in the country, and we’re delighted to welcome our second LTM 1200,” said Lifting Solutions leader Mark Herlihy.  “With a diverse range of brand new equipment introduced over the past year, ranging from 45 – 300 tonnes, we have a strong product offering of modern reliable equipment, and highly experienced staff.”

Select, part of the Laing O’Rourke group, is one of the UK’s largest, and most diverse, suppliers of equipment and services to the construction and building services industry.  With over 30 years experience, the company has established an excellent reputation and plays an integral role in the delivery of a wide variety of innovative, high quality construction projects
