Liebherr's uplifting figures

Liebherrs LHM 500: Iran top customer Liebherrs LHM 500: Iran top customer

Liebherr-Werk Nenzing delivered 48 units last year including 11 of its biggest crane in its 7-model range, the LHM 500, characterised by a maximum outreach of 51 meters and a lifting capacity up to 140 tonnes suitable for handling post-panamax vessels and claimed to be the most powerful harbour mobile crane on the market.

Liebherr celebrated the delivery of its 400th MHC last year, almost 70% of which were from the "new generation" range introduced 7 years ago. But one country surpassed the rest last year: Iran with nine LHM 500s.

Next came Spain with six LHM machines followed by England with five and, says Liebherr, characterised by a diversity of harbours which justifies the purchase of an LHM 70 as well as the choice of an LHM 400.

Meanwhile Liebherr Container Cranes has signed a contract for the supply of four heavy-duty twinlift RTGs to Cerescorp's Halifax Terminal. The gantries are of 8 wheel configuration, stack one over five containers high and span six containers plus a truck lane. S.W.L is 50 Tonnes under twinlift telescopic spreader whilst hoist speed is 23/50m/min and trolley speed is 70m/min.

Crane travel speed is 70/130m/min.
