Discover the new LS 800 E

The LS series

The LS series offers high performance heavy-lifting solutions. With capacities ranging from 120-1000 tonnes, LS cranes cover the main areas of the heavy cargo segment. With its compact design the LS series stands for simplified interfaces and easy vessel integration.

LS cranes are distinguished by their superior control system – Litronic. Thanks to this intelligent software LS cranes always achieve the maximum speed (depending on the respective load) and full utilization of the load moment. Furthermore, LS cranes feature state-of-the-art assist systems and are prepared for future applications.

Advantages at a glance


Liebherr attaches particular importance to the operational safety of marine cranes. Safety systems such as the Liebherr-Litronic, alarm programs for tilt and trim angles, and the collision warning system ensure that safety prevails even under full load.

Fast operation

When handling goods it is especially important to keep the mooring times short in order to minimize costs. Prerequisite for this is the reliable operation of the maritime equipment. Special high performance winches and robust components ensure fast operation of our low-maintenance ship cranes. You save time and money.


With Liebherr products you profit from decades of experience in the design and manufacture of ship cranes. Components and assistance programs developed in-house, for example the Liebherr Litronic control system, contribute to the further development of our products. In practical terms, this makes the use of Liebherr cranes faster, more reliable and safer.


Liebherr Sycratronic enables simultaneous control of several cranes. Thereby the full potential of the cranes is available and additional safety is given. Remote control is also possible. Our reliability is a direct result of our rigorous standards, which extend from the control system down to individual components and demonstrate our high level of competence.


This software, developed in-house by Liebherr, automatically covers all crane movements and load cycles and therefore actively supports the crane driver in controlling the crane. Thanks to the real-time monitoring of important machine parameters the crane driver is constantly informed in detail about the actual operation of the crane.

  • Stepless load curve trough automatic load moment control
  • Improved loading speeds through intelligent crane control
  • Quick troubleshooting through detailed error codes – either on crane monitor or via remote service
