Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH has managed to win several orders in Australia and New Zealand. During the last few weeks four luffing jib cranes from the HC-L series and a top-slewing crane from the EC-H series have left Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH for the voyage down under.

Liebherr's exclusive distributor in Australia, Morrow Equipment Co. L.L.C. based in Caringbah, NSW near Sydney, has expanded its crane fleet. Morrow continues to expand its hire fleet with the purchase of two new 542 HC-L 18/36 Litronic cranes and a used 540 HC-L model.

A 420 EC-H 16 Litronic crane is on its way to Christchurch by sea. The New Zealand government is currently rebuilding the city which was very badly damaged in the serious earthquake which struck in 2011. The rebuilding work reconstruction of the city centre will take several more years to complete, however.

The recently delivered 357 HC-L luffing jib crane is already in use in the construction of a dairy processing plant near Auckland. The 357 HC-L will primarily be used to erect prefabricated concrete components. The Micromove fine positioning mode is particularly useful for this work.
