03/11/2015 Liebherr launches mobile harbour crane LHM 800
Liebherr Maritime Cranes introduces the new flagship mobile harbour crane to the market, the LHM 800. This new giant model is the mobile solution for ever-growing vessel sizes and heavy industrial goods, taking container, bulk and general cargo handling to the next level.
The dimensions and capabilities of the LHM 800 are unique, outperforming all existing mobile harbour crane models in the market. Liebherr’s newest addition to the portfolio meets growing customer requirements for larger cargo handling solutions.
The new giant provides a lifting capacity of 308 tonnes, exceeding the maximum capacity of the so far strongest mobile harbour crane, type LHM 600, by not less than 100 tonnes. In addition the new LHM 800 is also designed for tandem lifts and, with a second LHM 800, has a maximum lifting capacity of 616 tonnes.
In container handling configuration the fulcrum point is above 36 metres, easing the handling of bigger vessels. Thanks to its mighty outreach of 64 metres, the crane is able to efficiently service large container vessels, which are as wide as 22 container rows. Bulk handling is an easy task as well. Equipped with Pactronic hybrid drive, the giant masters up to 2,300 tonnes per hour – an absolute record in the mobile harbour crane world. The new crane can also be fitted with SmartGrip, Liebherr’s self-learning technology for optimised grab filling rates.
