Liebherr Introduces RL-K 7500 Subsea Crane

June 11, 2012

RL-K 7500 – new crane for highest requirements in subsea lifting.

The RL-K 7500 subsea crane from Liebherr with knuckle boom and AHC for under water handling can lift 270 t above the surface of the water and handle loads down to a depth of 3,400 m.

Versatile and durable construction makes it ideally suited for the harsh and demanding environment for which it is designed. The Liebherr RL-K 7500 employs a unique design which enables loading to be handled more efficiently and with less time and manpower.

As a heavy lift crane (without subsea functionality) lifting capacities of 300 t are possible. A continuous boom configuration enables radii of 35 to 50 m. An advantage of the knuckle boom is that loads can be lowered to the water surface with a short rope length.
