Stockholm rely on the on the combined heating and power plant being operational at all
In order to comply with the requirements Liebherr delivered a fully electric driven portal
slewing crane, type LPS 420. The four-rope machine has a maximum lifting capacity of
up to 124 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 48 metres. Fitted with a 50m3 Verstegen
grab and Liebherrs hybrid drive system Pactronic® the LPS 420 is able to efficiently
unload up to 2.240m3 bulk per hour.
“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,” said Mats Stro¨mberg, Head Project Leader for Fortum Va¨rme’s new bio
power and heating plant.
A special feature of the crane is the elevator, which provides easy access for the crane
operator. The elevator was manufactured by the Swedish company Alimak, which is
specialized on industry elevators. Alimak installed the elevator in close cooperation
with Liebherr engineers.
Risavika Terminals want to increase container throughput
Risavika Terminals, located near Stavanger in Western Norway, wants to further
increase its container throughput. Risavika Terminals has already operated an LHM
320 for more than 12000 working hours. Risavika crane drivers and terminal
representatives are fully satisfied with the performance and the reliability of the
Liebherr crane. As a substitute for the LHM 320 they opted for a new mobile harbour
crane, type LHM 420.
The two-rope LHM 420 is equipped with a 670kW MAN diesel engine and will be
mainly used for container handling and heavy lift operation. The machine is also fitted
with Liebherr’s telematics system LiDAT® which supplies various operational data, e.g.
positioning of the machine, periods of operation and use, fuel consumption and also
service interval details. Liebherrs unique Cycoptronic® anti-swing system, which
automatically helps the crane driver to avoid unintended movements of the goods
under hook, is also on board.
LHM 550 to suit new needs
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.
Over the last three years the demand for heavy lift operation at the port increased
rapidly. Therefore, the port of Aabenraa decided to swap their existing LHM 280 for a
stronger model, a new LHM 550. The 4-rope machine is driven by a 750kW Liebherr
diesel engine which complies with the latest emission standards Tier 4 final / stage IV.
With a maximum lifting capacity of up to 144 tonnes the crane will be mainly used for
bulk operations and heavy lifts. Equipped with Liebherrs tandem lift software
Sycratronic®the crane can be synchronised with Aabenraa’s already existing LHM 320.
Long term partnership
When it comes to service, speed and reliability are essential elements for every
customer. Liebherr Maritime Cranes fully understands the value of a quick response to
reduce down time and restore LHM productivity straight away. 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. The
fast availability of spare parts and service engineers ensures high productivity for each
terminal. With these forward-looking investments the entrepreneurs of all three
companies made a consequent commitment to a long-term partnership with Liebherr
