The Port of Piombino in Italy has displayed its dredging capabilities in a new Liebherr video which features its HS 8300 HD crane in action.

With a load capacity of up to 300 tonnes, the HS 8300 HD is one of the largest duty cycle crawler cranes worldwide.

The crane is designed for material handling and can be used with dragline buckets and different grabs.

In the video, the HS 8300 HD uses a clamshell grab to remove a soft, loose layer of sediment.

This will be changed to a heavy grab with teeth to remove more solid layers.
