Mobile harbour crane LHM 280 received „Crane of the Year“ award

Mobile harbour

Liebherr-Werk Nenzing GmbH has been presented the „Crane of the Year“ award for its Mobile harbour crane LHM 280. The festive award ceremony took place at the former stock exchange building Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. The event, organised by the International Bulk Journal, was touted as „A salute to excellence in the Maritime Bulk Industry“ and brought together all the major players in global bulk handling, competing in categories like „Best grab“, „Best Dry Bulk Port“, „Bulk Ship of the Year“ etc.
Liebherr had entered its nomination for the LHM 280 in the category „Crane of the Year“ and had been shortlisted as one of three manufacturers prior to the event. The final choice was made by a jury consisting of 12 international experts within the bulk handling industry.
The nomination document states following:

„The LHM 280 was introduced in May 2008 setting new standards in efficiency, reliability and innovation. The crane’s flexibility makes it a universal all-rounder and key asset for handling everything, from containers, general cargo to bulk solids. With a max. lifting capacity of 84 t and a max. outreach of 40 m the crane is designed for a turnover up to 1,000 t/h in bulk and to handle vessels up to Handymax size. The LHM 280 is well suited for small ports with length and draft restrictions and is available in a wide scope of specific settings. Within 14 months already 15 units have been sold. In the first year since its market launch the LHM 280 has already topped the average annual sales figures of the preceding model, LHM 250, demonstrating the strond demand as well as the acceptance of the market for this specific crane type and size.“
