With two state-of-the-art Liebherr Mobile Harbor Cranes, Niedersachsen Ports works the switches for more turnover in their seaports Brake and Emden.

Within a short time frame, Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG (NPorts) in Northern Germany ordered two Liebherr Mobile Harbor Cranes (LHM).

In Brake, NPorts has already operated a LHM 500 for years, the company said, so it decided to equip the Niedersachsenkai with the popular successor model, type LHM 550. The LHM 550 provides a maximum lifting capacity of 144 tons and an outreach of up to 54 meters. At maximum outreach the capacity is 40.9 tons.

Due to this second LHM in Brake, NPorts also offers high-capacity tandem lifts to its customers. In this regard, innovative technology from Liebherr plays a major role. Thanks to the installation of Sycratronic, one crane operator can handle heavy loads of up to 284 tons. The new crane has started operation in May 2013. In Brake, NPorts mainly handles project cargo, heavy cargo and components for the wind power industry.

The NPorts branch in Emden was in need of a short delivery time. After the existing cranes had to be shut down at short notice, an alternative was urgently required. Liebherr was in the position to offer a delivery time of just 14 days ex works for its newest model, type LHM 420. In early April, the new crane was delivered to Emden fully assembled. Only a few days after arrival, the new crane was ready for operation.

The LHM 420 is equipped with two double winches and provides a maximum lifting capacity of 124 tons as well as a maximum outreach of 48 meters. At maximum outreach the capacity is 34.5 tons. Main tasks of the new machine include grab operation (SWL 75 tons), project cargo and break bulk.

Both Liebherr Mobile Harbor Cranes in Lower Saxony’s Emden and Brake are equipped with a powerful 670 kW diesel engine. Thanks to innovative eco-technology the fuel consumption is between 25 and 35 liters per operating hour (depending on application).
