In an ingenious example of alternative technology, Liebherr has modified its deck cranes for use on the quay. The Fixed Cargo Crane (FCC) and Travelling Cargo Crane (TCC) concept is relatively new but has proven to be an ideal solution both technically and economically for quaysides which perhaps have a limited amount of space available for craneage and where fully mobile cranes are not a feasible option. " The concept may be new but the cranes themselves are part of Liebherr' s existing range, both level-lutting and rope-lutting, as well as heavy duty, high-performance fourrope grab cranes for bulk handling, " says Liebherr' s Mhairi Fischer.
