Esbjerg to add LHM 800 this summer

Denmark’s port of Esbjerg has placed an order with Liebherr for its largest mobile harbour crane, the LHM 800.

The 308-tonne lifting capacity machine has a height of 48 m and a boom length of 66 m. It will be delivered during August 2019.

”We are experiencing a growth in high and heavy cargo and that makes new demands on our crane capacity,” explained Dennis Jul Pedersen, ceo at the port of Esbjerg. The number of tasks requiring crane services at the port has increased by 66 percent over the course of the past four years.

The need for the LHM 800 has also been driven by developments in the offshore industry. In particular, wind turbine components destined for North Sea projects are increasing in size and weight, said the port.

“The crane gives us much greater cargo handling flexibility. In addition to single lifts of over 300 tonnes, the new crane will allow us to carry out tandem lifts with two of our largest cranes together lifting up to 448 tonnes,” Pedersen said.
