Liebherr developing TCC 78000 at Rostock

Liebherr is constructing a 1,600-tonne capacity crane - the TCC 78000 - at its facility in Rostock, Germany.

Featuring a maximum lifting height of 112 m, the rail-mounted heavy lift crane will be able to move over a distance of 420 m between the factory site and the adjacent quayside.

Equipped with a double trolley (two rails per side) and a rail gauge of 30 m, Liebherr said the crane provides optimum flexibility for handling all types of large-sized goods.

The TCC 78000 will be used for handling heavy cargoes from the offshore, shipbuilding, industrial plant construction and logistics sectors, as well as for its in-house logistics processes such as the production, assembly and dispatch of maritime cranes. In the future, the gantry crane will also provide other companies the possibility of handling heavy lift cargoes in the port of Rostock, added Liebherr.

Its first major operation is to install the HLC 295000 heavy lift crane - the largest offshore crane Liebherr has ever built - onto DEME’s wind farm installation and platform decommissioning vessel, Orion.

The HLC 295000 will be able to lift 5,000 tonnes at an outreach of more than 30 m. Liebherr was awarded the contract to supply the heavy lift crane for DEME in March 2018, as HLPFI reported here
