MHC orders buoyant
Liebherr-Werk Nenzing expects 2004 to be an excellent year for mobile harbour crane sales with orders expected to exceed 60 against a budgeted target of 50. The EU followed by the Far East are Liebherr' s strongest markets but countrywise, India comes top taking eight machines during the first eight months of the year followed by Spain and France with six MHCs each and Turkey with four.
The majority of 14 cranes (35%) are Liebherr's best-selling LHM 400, characterised by a lifting capacity of 104 tonnes and 48 metres outreach. Interestingly the number two position is occupied by the LHM 150 (32 metres outreach and 40 tonnes safe working load) which is in high demand with smaller ports.
Liebherr says a majority of 25 units (62.5 %) are equipped in four-rope configuration (which is the preferred scope of supply for bulk handling machines) whereas only 15 units (37.5%) are of a two-rope design.
