Liebherr´s ship crane department has received order volume of 60 Liebherr ship cranes from the South Korean shipyard company Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.
The company will provide four CBW 2100 cranes for each of the 15 new identical LNG gas carriers.
Each vessel has a capacity of 172,600 cubic metres and a total length of 299 metres.
The LNG gas carriers are specially designed and adapted for the extreme environmental conditions around the Russian peninsula Yamal.
Every unit of this new vessel class named YAMALMAX fulfil the necessary requirements for the highest classification as icebreakers.
The CBW 2100 is customised for extreme deep temperatures of minus 52 degrees Celsius and gale force wind speeds up to 22 metres per second.
It is also equipped with gas sensors to ensure maximum safety while operating in an explosion proofed working area.
Two units per ship set are going to be used as provision cranes while the other two units will assume the onboard hose handling.
Each of them has a maximum outreach of 26 metres and a maximum capacity of 15 tons.
