Mobile crane manufacturers are enjoying a buoyant time with Liebherr-Werk Nenzing announcing an order for its 100th model LHM 400 mobile and Gottwald Port Technology reporting that up until the midyear point it received orders for 15 of its model HMK 300 E mobile cranes with the latest order coming from Turkey.

Liebherr-Werk Nenzing's 100th unit order was placed by the Iranian Ports and Shipping Organisation, a long time client of the company which has now ordered a total of 26 mobile units including two LHM 250 units in 2002 and nine LHM 500 units in 2003, offering a maximum capacity of 140 tonnes and outreach of 51m.

The 100th LHM 400 will be supplied with a fully automatic telescopic spreader and a fourrope grab for container and bulk cargo handling duties respectively. This particular unit will also possess all the design upgrades that have recently been introduced into the Liebherr LHM 400 and 500 models, right through from the redesign of the undercarriage to increased operating speeds etc. It will additionally feature the Cycoptronic cycle optimising electronic crane control system.

The Gottwald HMK 300E 100 ton unit ordered for Turkey is destined for service with Mardmas Marmara Deinz Isletmeciligi in Istanbul, a company that already operates three Gottwald mobile harbour cranes in the scrap and container handling sectors. In particular, it is envisaged that the new unit will play a key role in increasing annual container handling volume from 90,000 to 150,000TEUs per annum.
