Montage Liebherr LHM420 bayernhafen Passau

After the ‘dream wedding’ shortly before Christmas involving the mounting of the machine house with slewing platform onto the crane undercarriage, the next step was to install the new mobile crane in bayernhafen Passau.

Braving temperatures around the freezing point, Liebherr’s team of mechanics set to work installing the tower of the LHM420 crane. At around 60 tonnes, the tower alone is in the heavy-weight class. But this was no problem for the ‘dream team’ made up of the port’s own mobile crane and a mobile crane belonging to the heavy-lift specialist, Saller. This was then followed by the installation of the boom. The new Liebherr mobile crane has a jib length of up to 48 metres.
