The LBS-series is well-adapted for moving loads between ocean-going ships (up to the post-Panamax class) and barges as well as small riverboats in inland waterways.

LBS-series

Load capacities LBS 800 LBS 600 LBS 550
Bulk cargo (on the ropes) 75t @ 34m 75t @ 26m 52t @ 28m
Container (on the spreader) 50t @ 49m 50t @ 33m 42t @ 29m
Heavy load (on the hook) 150t @ 24m 140t @ 14m 51t @ 29m
The load capacities may vary depending on the application.

Advantages at a glance

If terminals reach the limits of their capacity, LBS floating cranes are optimal alternatives to cost-intensive, infrastructure-related modifications to the quayside.

Floating-cranes are autonomous units that require no harbour area at all and can be operated anywhere in the harbour water area.

Another area in which the LBS-series can be deployed is in the support of land-based cranes, particularly to relieve load during peak times.
