Around the world with Liebherr

The highlights of the Group

Concrete technology All-electric transport

Emission-free, virtually noiseless concrete transport and a battery that is simply charged overnight: Liebherr develops the first fully electric truck mixer in cooperation with Designwerk. Available in two versions, with 10 and 12 cubic metres drums, the ETM 1005 and ETM 1205 set a milestone in environmentally friendly concrete transport.

Material handling technology, construction machines, mobile and crawler cranes Around the world and back

Day after day, the S-Bahn trains in Munich (Germany) cover a distance equivalent to a journey around the globe and back. On the Marienhof construction site in the heart of the city, six Liebherr machines play a major role in the construction of one of the central access structures to the second main line. In addition to two cable excavators with slurry wall cutters and -grabs, the LB 24 and LB 44 drilling rigs are being used in the extension of the S-Bahn. An LR 1250 crawler crane lifts the reinforcement cages, which weigh up to 55 tonnes and are 55 metre high, into position.

Mobile and crawler cranes The world‘s first battery-powered crawler crane

Ending the year on a high note: with the LR 1250.1 unplugged, Liebherr presents the world‘s first battery-powered crawler crane in a brand new design. Model number one goes to Kynningsrud Nordic Crane AS in Norway, which uses the crane in Oslo. An investment for the future, considering the Norwegian capital’s goal to be independent from fossil energy by 2030.

Aerospace Supersonic air conditioning

Liebherr-Aerospace will develop and supply the air management system for Aerion‘s new supersonic business jet AS2. One of the core components of the system will be an electric air conditioning unit, which enables more efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft operation. The air required by the system will be drawn in from the outside and not from the engines, as is usually the case.

Aerospace, components To the airport with hydrogen

Success for Liebherr’s developers: Liebherr technology is now on board the hydrogen-powered shuttle buses manufactured by Shanghai Automobile Group Co, Ltd, which shuttle between Hongqiao and Pudong airports in Shanghai. The integrated electric compressor is a crucial component of the PROME P390 fuel cell system on board the buses. The system received the mandatory Chinese certification (CCC) at the beginning of 2020.

Domestic appliances „Digital Hub“ in a prime location

One year after construction started, Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH moves into its new premises in Science Park III in Ulm (Germany). In addition to sales and services, the new building also houses the digitalisation department. This is the ideal prerequisite for future-oriented digital work. The proximity of the innovation centre to Ulm University makes Liebherr an attractive employer for students and junior staff.
