Overload test for Liebherr Heavy Lift Crane

January 23, 2013

Currently the support vessel Caballo Marango is being equipped with a Liebherr heavy lift crane, type BOS 35000, in the port of Rostock. The overload test has now been carried out and the offshore crane successfully lifted 1,100 t which is 110%  of its maximum lifting capacity.


The crane, offering a maximum boom length of 102 m, was built at the Liebherr plant in Rostock within the last eight months. Forming part of the Caballo Marango’s equipment it is intended to execute future assembly and reconstruction work on oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico for the Mexican service company Oceanografia. The versatile crane can, however, also be applied for installing offshore wind parks.


The advantages of the BOS 35000 include easy slewing, so allowing the customer to work efficiently and economically.
