A Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 recently completed a job in the centre of Berlin in front of a large crowd, placing the magnificent cupola on the new Humboldt Forum. The reconstructed cupola is decorated with eight angel figures and palm leaves, as well as a lantern and a golden cross. The reconstruction of the destroyed Berlin Palace has been undertaken to restore Berlin's historic cityscape. The crane was supplied by Mobile-Hubtechnik Kranarbeiten und Transporte (Mobi-Hub) to assist with the restoration which began in 2013. The LTM 1500-8.1 was set up with a 42 m luffing lattice jib and 90 T of ballast to enable it to hoist the filigree load weighing 9 T to a height of 70 m. Mobi-Hub is based in Berlin and, in addition to its crane rental services, it also increasingly provides planning, logistics and completion services for industrial and construction projects. The crane service provider has a workforce of around 80 people.
