Liebherr Strengthens Scandinavian Presence


Liebherr has delivered a fully-electrical LPS 420 portal slewing crane to AB Fortum Värme, co-owned with the City of Stockholm.

37 years after the first delivery of a Liebherr mobile harbour crane to Scandinavia, the demand for Liebherr products remains constant.

In order to comply with the requirements, Liebherr delivered a fully electric driven portal slewing crane, type LPS 420.

Mats Strömberg, Head Project Leader for Fortum Värme, said: “We have the highest demands regarding quality for all equipment suppliers for our combined bio power and heating plant.

“The crane is going to be used for many years to come, and therefore it feels satisfying that the crane is delivered from one of the biggest suppliers at the market, who has many years of experience for this type of equipment.”

Risavika Terminals, located near Stavanger in Western Norway, wants to further increase its container throughput and has already operated an LHM 320 for more than 12,000 working hours.

As a substitute for the LHM 320 Risavika Terminals opted for a new mobile harbour crane, type LHM 420.

The two-rope LHM 420 is equipped with a 670 kilowatt MAN diesel engine and will be mainly used for container handling and heavy-lift operations.

The machine is also fitted with Liebherr’s telematics system LiDAT which supplies various operational data, such as positioning of the machine, periods of operation and use, fuel consumption and also service interval details.

The Port of Aabenraa is the fastest growing Danish harbour in terms of cargo handling. The port acts as a loading and unloading hub for the entire Baltic Sea and is one of Liebherrs long-time customers in Scandinavia.

The port of Aabenraa decided to swap its existing LHM 280 for a stronger model, a new LHM 550.

To benefit from the Liebherr customer service the three Scandinavian customers (Fortum, Risavika Terminals and the Port of Aabenraa) signed a service agreement with Liebherr.

With these forward-looking investments the entrepreneurs of all three companies made a consequent commitment to a long-term partnership with Liebherr Maritime Cranes.
