Liebherr has won several orders for LHM mobile harbour cranes from the Middle East. These include two LHMs, a reachstacker and the first LiSIM LHM 550 simulator. This year more than 40 mobile harbour cranes have been delivered making a total of well over 300 LHMs in the region.
A first was the order for the new LiSIM mobile harbour crane simulator for Saqr Port in Ras Al Kaimah, United Arab Emirates. The resulting increase in operator skills allows for safe and productive crane operation in the real world and naturally boosts productivity. Saqr Port has opted for the classroom solution which can be easily integrated into existing training centres.
Saqr Port has ordered an LHM 550, reinforcing its existing mobile harbour crane fleet. The new crane is equipped with Liebherr’s Pactronic system for more fuel efficient bulk handling. The LHMs can also be used for container handling and general cargo operation if necessary – just by an easy exchange of the lifting attachment. The new crane and simulator will be commissioned in the first quarter of 2014.
To revitalise the Port of Maqal in Iraq, NAWAH Port Management has purchased an LHM 180 and a Liebherr LRS 645 Reachstacker. The LHM 180 is designed for container handling as well as for safe and reliable general cargo operation having a maximum lift of 64 tonnes.
