TCC is the abbreviation for Travelling Cargo Crane. The rail-mounted heavy-duty crane will move on a portal between the northern Liebherr plant site and the adjacent quay edge. With its maximum lifting capacity of 1,600 tonnes and a total height of 164 metres with the jib raised, the TCC 78000 will characterise the appearance of Rostock harbour in future. Equipped with a double bogeys (two rails per side) and a track gauge of 30 metres, the gantry crane provides optimum flexibility for handling all types of large goods.
Liebherr is not the only one benefiting from these new and important perspectives. The rail-mounted gantry crane will also offer other companies the opportunity to handle heavy loads at Rostock Port.
"With this impressive crane, the Hanseatic City of Rostock has gained another landmark, which at the same time is a symbol for the success story of Liebherr in the overseas port of Rostock. The heavy-duty gantry crane improves the opportunities for further company settlements and the acquisition of extremely heavy project cargoes. This potential must be enhanced together," says Dr. Gernot Tesch, Managing Director of ROSTOCK PORT GmbH.
