Around the world with Liebherr

The highlights of the group

Tower cranes A stroke of logistical genius

The HafenCity urban development programme in Hamburg (Germany) includes the construction of the new Überseequartier District. A fleet of 25 Liebherr tower cranes are helping to move the project forward with the construction of four different buildings. From office towers and residential buildings to cinemas and shopping centres—this large-scale project has it all. The project planners are relying on Liebherr’s Tower Crane Solutions Team for consultation and support throughout the planning and implementation stages. Thanks to their input, the parallel use of tower cranes on the project has been a stroke of logistical genius.

Crawler excavators World premiere in the UK

Under a strategic partnership with Leica Geosystems, the Liebherr R 934 crawler excavator is the first in the world to be equipped ex works with a 3D machine control system. The crawler excavator was delivered to the British company Brad Pave. Laser-assisted technologies provide the 3D machine control system with tilt and rotation functions that enable the Liebherr hydraulic excavator to work even more precisely and efficiently. By installing this system at the factory, Liebherr can ensure maximum reliability whilst minimising downtime on the work site.

Refrigeration and freezing equipment The future of refrigeration and freezing

Design meets functionality with the launch of Liebherr’s new generation of refrigerators and freezers. These new appliances include smart features as well as powerful technical innovations to optimise energy efficiency. Quality, durability and sustainability were the guiding principles of their design process. All features are specially designed to meet customer needs and ensure a long product lifespan.

Hotels 60 years of hospitality

In the 1950s, company founder Hans Liebherr fell in love with the town of Killarney in south-west Ireland. He eventually opened The Europe Hotel there in 1961. Over the past six decades, this Liebherr Hotel has become one of the leading establishments in the Irish and international hotel industry. Today, ‘The Europe’, which offers panoramic lakeside views of Killarney’s Lough Lein, is renowned as one of Ireland’s finest 5-star hotels.

Aerospace, components Hydrogen fuel cell technology for aviation

Liebherr-Aerospace and General Motors have signed an agreement to develop a hydrogen fuel cell-based power generation system for the aviation sector. The two companies are pooling their expertise for this innovative new project. Liebherr is an expert in integrating different aircraft technologies, whilst General Motors is the leader in the field of fuel cells. Together they are working on a low-emission solution that will offer an alternative to combustion engines for aviation in the future.
