In early 2012, a state-of-the-art Liebherr Mobile Harbour Crane, type LHM 550, marked the 40th delivery to the North American market. Of these machines 32 were delivered to the United States and 8 to Canada. Since 2006 a stable upward trend has been evident, especially in the United States.

 

Since 2006 more than 20 Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes are guarantying highly efficient cargo handling throughout North America.


The 40th crane delivered was purchased by the Maine Port Authority for their port in Searsport, ME USA. The facilities of the terminal include two piers, one for dry cargo and one for liquid cargo. Bulk material handling is one of the machine’s main tasks. For that reason the LHM 550 is equipped with two winches for mechanical four rope grab operation. With a maximum lifting capacity of 144 tons, the new crane is ideal for handling heavy lift cargo, like windmill components.


The new LHM 550 is the second Liebherr Mobile Harbour crane purchased by the Maine Port Authority. The customer received its first crane, type LHM 320, in 2000. Due to their positive experience with the first machine, the Maine Port Authority decided to order a new and even stronger LHM, manufactured in accordance with the highest quality standards.


Recently, another LHM 550 was delivered to the United States. Gloucester Terminals LLC has reinforced their cargo handling equipment fleet with Liebherr’s most in demand mobile harbour crane model, the LHM 550. Equipped with one winch, their new Liebherr machine will be used for general cargo and container handling. The LHM 550 is backed up by an existing LHM 400 which started operation in Gloucester in January 2011. Gloucester Terminals specialises in steel, containers, forest products, project cargo and heavy lift. Additionally, theyprovide a large refrigerated capacity for perishable products.


North American customers take advantage of the excellent service network Liebherr has established throughout the market. Liebherr’s service network spans the globe which guarantees quick response times and minimized downtimes. Liebherr is optimistic that the upward trend will continue and further deliveries to North America are planned for the coming months.
