2018 Liebherr products travel all over the world
In 2018 Liebherr products were once again in use all over the world in trendsetting projects, with Europe's largest construction site ‘Grand Paris’ being one such example. This twenty-first century project should prevent gridlock in the French capital and will continue until 2030. At the port of Rostock (Germany), Liebherr installed one of the most powerful land-based heavy duty cranes in the world to enable the loading of heavy loads from in-house production and external handling of heavy duty cargo. Around 1,000 km away as the crow flies, a Liebherr rope excavator assisted in the expansion of the Jätkäsaari peninsula in Finland. A new district with apartments for around 21,000 people is being built south of Helsinki. Liebherr implemented another project with the Norwegian crane operator OHT: the HLC 150000 heavy duty crane was used on a ship for the installation of wind farm foundations. The installation ship, which has a lift capacity of 48,000 tonnes, can submerge in operation and this increases the stability of the crane. As a result, the HLC can withstand a variety of environments, enabling it to be operated in almost all types of weather. And Liebherr products are also active in Santiago de Chile in South America. For example, the airport is being extended by 265,000 m², an additional terminal and twice as many parking spaces using 23 tower cranes, all without any interruption to flight operations.
