Crawler overturns in Germany  

Credit:  January 14, 2015 | www.vertikal.net ~~

A crawler crane overturned on a wind farm in Janneby, near Flensburg, Germany, last Friday during severe gale force winds.

The crane, a large Liebherr owned by Sarens, was fully rigged with around 100 metres of boom and back mast. All of which went over the back over the crane in the high winds.

No one was injured in the incident and fortunately the boom missed three turbine tower sections which were awaiting installation.
