Liebherr has put into operation its new combined mobile harbour and offshore crane.
The new, innovative TCC 14000-400 D Litronic® from Liebherr can be used for two completely different types of application. The crane can either be used as an offshore crane, fixed on a floating installation (barge); it is then able to lift heavy loads up to a maximum of 400 tonnes at an outreach of 21 meter.
It can also operate onshore as a mobile harbour crane with high lifting capacities. For the undercarriage the drive technology of a Liebherr mobile harbour crane was combined with a newly designed steel fabrication. It consists of a central X-shaped structure to which four outriggers are mounted. For travelling operation the base structure is fitted with 48 wheel sets as known from the conventional mobile harbour crane.
The multi-purpose crane with a dead weight of approximately 1,100 tonnes has been assembled in the port of Baku, Azerbaijan. It is currently used for the construction of oil platforms in the Caspian Sea.
