With Liebherr products, you profit from decades of experience in the design and construction of ship cranes. Liebherr has been supplying the shipping industry with a broad variety of ship cranes since 1958 when the first ship crane was developed at the Liebherr factory Biberach. The B36 ship crane had a lifting capacity of 3 tons, and even back then the focus was on loading operations that shortened lay times.
Much has changed over the years, such as the lifting capacity of our ship cranes, which can now lift up to 1000 tons. The names have also changed over the years: From B36 to LS and LS-C. The new designations allow direct assignment as Liebherr (L) ship crane (S) in combination with the maximum lifting capacity at the end of the designation. The core competencies remain unchanged: Safety, speed and reliability still characterize our ship cranes more than 60 years later.
