Jumbo loads the most powerful mobile harbour cranes in the world
On Tuesday, the 28th of June, Jumbo's heavy lift vessel Fairlane loaded two LHM-800 Liebherr cranes. These are the most powerful mobile harbour cranes in the world and able to unload the largest modern container ships available; the Post-Panamax vessels.
Fairlane is a vessel of Jumbo's H-class family; relatively small in length but very powerful vessels which are able to lift impressive cargoes up to 800 tonnes. These vessels have proven to be able to offer a very cost effective dedicated service for their clients all around the world, since 2001. Fairlane is just one of Jumbo's Heavy Lift Vessels which is employed for international heavy lift transport. Jumbo's versatile fleet has lifting capabilities up to 3,000 tonnes offering its clients flexibility and reliability. Jumbo’s services range from transporting large and heavy pieces of equipment requiring maximum lifting capacity and outreach, to smaller, lighter cargoes and to calling at small, underdeveloped and shallow water ports.
Jumbo and Liebherr have been working together for several years and Jumbo has safely transported multiple cranes for Liebherr. It is for this long-standing relation that Liebherr was able to offer an affordable, reliable and dedicated service for its client Montecon.
The most powerful mobile harbour crane
According to Liebherr, the LHM-800 is the most powerful mobile harbour crane in the world. Owing to its huge dimensions, the crane handles large freighters with a width of up to 22 rows of containers. Thanks to its maximum lifting capacity of over 300 tonnes, the crane is particularly suitable for the handling of heavy industrial goods. The bulk cargo capacity of this giant is also unique at 2,300 tonnes per hour.
