The Port of Grenaa in Denmark has ordered a Liebherr mobile harbour crane type LHM 550, equipped with electric drive.
The MHC will replace an existing crane that was no longer up to date. The port authority decided to purchase Liebherr’s most frequently sold model in the LHM portfolio, the LHM 550, with more than 250 units delivered.
The demand for sustainable, environmentally sensitive operation and for low-emission cargo handling cranes is becoming increasingly important. The port of Grenaa also wants to strengthen its green profile with the locally emission-free drive.
Before the LHM 550, which was previously in service in Finland for three years, is delivered to the port of Grenaa, it is being given an upgrade at Liebherr’s maritime headquarters in Rostock, Germany. There, the LHM 550 will be fitted with an electric drive, which will significantly reduce future emissions when handling goods.
With its 54m-long boom and maximum lifting capacity of 144t, the LHM 550 covers a wide range of handling options.
