TCC 78000 installs the largest offshore crane Liebherr has ever built
The time has come. The Travelling Cargo Crane (TCC) 78000 installs the Heavy Lift Crane (HLC) 295000 on the vessel Orion. The TCC, a rail-mounted gantry crane with a maximum lifting capacity of 1,600 tonnes, is being used at the Liebherr site in Rostock for internal and external logistics processes. These include production processes, initial assembly and dispatch of ever larger maritime cranes as well as lifting activities for external companies.
Due to the unique combination of lifting height (164 meters) and capacity, the TCC 78000 is the best solution to install the HLC 295000 safely and economically. The Heavy Lift Crane, the largest offshore crane Liebherr has ever built, has a maximum lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes. In the future, the HLC will be used for the installation of offshore wind farms and for the decommissioning of disused oil and gas exploration facilities.
