RL-K 4200: Ram luffing knuckle-boom crane

Liebherr's offshore crane product area has almost completed another project with long-term partner Total. Three state-of-the-art ram luffing knuckle-boom cranes of the type RL-K 4200 will be delivered for Total’s Egina vessel.

These will be the first RL-K series cranes for Total, and the first Ex-rated knuckle-boom cranes for Liebherr – a great milestone for both companies. Testing of the first unit will be carried out with the customer on the test area in Germany in August, with delivery coming later in the year.

The first dealings with Total go all the way back to 1985, but the more recent involvement included cranes for all vessels equivalent to the Egina type, such as Dalia in 2005, Pazflor in 2009, and Clov in 2013. There is also a number of cranes on several fixed platforms.
