As more wind farms are being installed in the country, hub heights and therefore rotor blades, nacelles and tower sections are growing taller - all requiring larger cranes to carry out installation.

To meet these demands, Mammoet has welcomed another new LG1750 crane to its existing Australian fleet.
The LG1750 crane is specifically designed to meet wind turbine erection requirements. With a 750-ton capacity, Mammoet says it is the strongest lattice boom mobile crane in the world.
"The addition of these cranes ensures we are equipped for the future developments and demands of the market," Mammoet operations manager Riki McMahaon said.

"This is on top of our highly specialised team of professionals, our extensive fleet of main cranes ranging from 300 to 750 tons and our experience gained over decades installing wind farms around the world."
Mammoet is now also offering wind transport services in Australia and is currently working on a project in Western Australia as well as two other projects on the East Coast.
