If space on land is scarce
Liebherr crawler cranes are certified for lifting work on barges. Their use as floating cranes opens up a multitude of new possibilities. Especially in cities were space is tight, the river can be used as an alternative working platform.
Crawler cranes carry out lifting work on floating platforms. Construction materials that are transported on the river reduce road transport and so relieve traffic in the inner city.
Rivers in populated areas are a great field of activity for the floating LR series.
Liebherr's floating crawler cranes unfold their unique versatility in the course of the construction of river regulations, flood retention areas, drainige and treatment plants.
On jack-up platforms, crawler cranes serve as working platforms for port expansion.
Even in offshore windparks our LR crawler cranes feel like home beeing placed on pontons. For around one year the IJsselmeer (Lake IJssel) in the north of the Netherlands was the scene of an unusual job for a LR 11350. The crawler crane erected the complete "Westermeerwind" wind farm from a massive jack-up platform, featuring 48 Siemens wind turbines with a hub height of 95 metres...
The use of floating crawler cranes can be advantageous when building bridges over water.
Liebherr crawler cranes are also used in ports. They are in demand above all for their versatility as handling equipment. This is particularly evident in the heavy lift, general and project cargo business.
Quite a common sight in ports: our LR crawler cranes, especially when it comes to heavy lifting tasks such as handling of oil platforms parts or wind turbine elements for offshore wind farms. All the really heavy parts that common harbour cranes can no longer handle require special cranes - the LR crawler cranes series.
Container handling is not the main area of application, but if there is need or a cargo handling crane has broken down, the crawler crane can certainly step into the breach. Equipping the crawler crane with the appropriate lifting equipment requires a minimum amount of time.
The continuous improvement and expansion of the service network is part of Liebherr’s commitment to offer the best possible support to customers worldwide.
