TCC 78000 prepares for work in Rostock

Liebherr has inaugurated its rail-mounted heavy lift crane – the TCC 78000 – in Rostock, Germany.

With a maximum lifting capacity of 1,600 tonnes and a total height of 164 m, the crane will be used for handling heavy cargoes from the offshore, shipbuilding, industrial plant construction and logistics sectors, as well as for Liebherr's in-house logistics processes such as the production, assembly and dispatch of maritime cranes.

As HLPFI reported here, one of the first major operations of the TCC 78000 will be the installation of 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.
