40th Mobile Harbour Crane delivered to North America
Recently, Liebherr has delivered its 40th Mobile Harbour Crane to the North American market. This total fleet comprises eight units in Canada and 32 in the United States.
The 40th Mobile Harbour Crane, a LHM 550 model, was delivered in spring 2012 to the Maine Port Authority for their port in Searsport, ME USA. This LHM 550 has a maximum lifting capacity of 144 tons, ideal for handling heavy lift cargo, like windmill components. Furthermore the machine is equipped with two winches which allows for efficient mechanical four rope grab operation. The new crane is the second LHM ordered by the Maine Port Authority. The customer received its first crane, type LHM 320, in 2000.
