04/10/2017 Liebherr planning new development and demonstration centre in Kirchdorf
Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH is planning a testing hall with administration building, a large test site and a demonstration area on a total area of 12.68 hectares. The key component is the 19.2m high testing hall. All prototypes will be built, commissioned and optimised here in the future. Doors with a height of 13m also make it possible to drive the fully-assembled machines, also large port and harbour material handlers, out of the hall. A test environment is also being constructed in order to improve the components installed in the machines. The administration building will offer space for up to 100 modern workstations on four levels. The practical tests and inspections to be implemented will be prepared, evaluated and documented at these workstations. The design of the test site also includes, in addition to various digging facilities for earthmoving and industrial machines, a noise measurement site for evaluating and optimising the noise emissions, as well as an approx. 900 m long testing track with slope and various poor-quality roads for road tests. In order to give potential new customers, as well as existing customers, a better understanding of the operating principle of the machines within the framework of practical tests, an area for customer demonstrations, training and sales and marketing tests is planned.
