LHM 800 arrives in Esbjerg

The world’s biggest mobile harbour crane increases offshore wind farm load-out capacity for Blue Water Shipping

The world’s largest port mobile crane, a Liebherr LHM 800, has arrived, on schedule, in the Danish port of Esbjerg, for operation by Blue Water Shipping.


Self-weight of the crane is around 800 tons. Maximum boom radius is 66m.


Esbjerg’s LHM 800 is a 4-rope crane with a very tall counterweight stack, like the one shown left being delivered in 2015 to Bronka, Russia. As such, it has a maximum lift capacity of more than 300 tons on the hook. It will be used by Blue Water Shipping in tandem with another Liebherr mobile harbour crane to perform a maximum lift of 448 tons.


Dennis Jul Pedersen. CEO of the Port of Esbjerg, said. “The new crane considerably increases our capacity for offshore wind farms and other heavy project cargoes."


The new crane was shipped fully-erect from Rostock on a Rolldock ship and was handled by Blue Water Shipping, as appointed stevedore for the vessel.
