Liebherr's ship crane department has celebrated its cooperation with Damen Shipyards Group after recieving its 110th order with the maritime conglomerate.
The historical purchase is for a Liebherr floating crane type CBG 350 that will be used on a transshipment crane barge built by Damen.
This year also marks other important successes for both companies in the maritime sector.
Damen has reached its ninth decade of operations in the shipbuilding industry and Liebherr Maritime recently reported that it has amassed more than 50 deliveries of reachstacker and mobile harbour cranes to the Port of Antwerp in the past 25 years.
Member of the board of Liebherr-International AG, Patricia Rüf, and CCO Arnout Damen, both represent the third generation of their family-owned companies.
At the signing ceremony for the 110th order, Patricia Rüf said: “The vessels of Damen Shipyards Group and the cranes from Liebherr complement each other perfectly and achieve highest effectiveness when it comes down to transportation and transshipment of goods globally.
“The common position of both our companies essentially follows the philosophy of creating the highest quality standards and we are proud that our cranes are installed on their vessels.
“We are confident that our cooperation will continue in the future and we are in no doubt that the continuous improvement of our ship crane portfolio will meet the requirements of next-generation vessels.”
Arnout Damen said: “We have very much enjoyed working together with Liebherr for more than 30 years and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.”
