Heavy Lift Crane - HLC

The Liebherr heavy lift crane series (HLC) is designed especially for the installation of wind farms and for the oil and gas as well as the decommissioning sector.

  • The new heavy lift crane series is the biggest offshore crane Liebherr has developed so far.

    Advantages at a glance

    The rope luffing is effected in a so-called A-frame design. This way the crane achieves optimal stability and reliability.

    The combination of swivel bearings, slewing mechanisms, winches and the Liebherr Litronic system ensures precise positioning as well as exact movement of the loads with reduced fuel consumption. Together with the powerful electro-hydraulic drive, this guarantees optimum control of the equipment in all operating situations.

    The HLC can be deployed as a heavy duty crane for the assembly and maintenance of offshore installations. At a maximum of 5,000 tonnes, the enormous lifting capacity of the crane facilitates the installation of next generation wind turbines as well as loading and subsequent installation of heaviest foundations.
    Next to this commissioning and decommissioning of offshore installations such as oil and gas platforms is another area of use.
