Tandem lifting assistance



The Sycratronic assist system makes it possible to operate two Liebherr cranes in tandem mode. A crane operator controls the movement of both machines that are electronically synchronised. While manual tandem lifts have to be restricted to 75% of the crane's capacity, this control system guarantees 100% utilisation of the maximum load capacity.

Tandem lifting assistance system


With the Sycratronic system improving the safety of tandem operations, this makes it easier for terminal operators to scale up their lift capacities to over 600 tonnes when combining two LHM 800 cranes. While the system is developed to improve crane operations in all heavy-lift sectors, it could in particular prove useful in the (offshore) wind industry where long components and tandem lift operations have become the norm.

The biggest benefits are improved efficiency and increased safety. Due to built-in safeties, the Sycratronic​ system allows the crane driver to fully use the load curve of the crane, while this is normally restricted to 75 %.
