Rostock (Germany), November 2017 – The Liebherr offshore crane division has produced and delivered a new manipulator tool with a safety working load of 100 tonnes. Using this special equipment will extend the task our offshore cranes can complete in service.
Providing reliable machines and safe working conditions is quintessential for an equipment manufacturer. To underline this approach, Liebherr designed a manipulator for its ram luffing knuckle boom crane series.
The Manipulator 100 is able to be used with either hook or crossbar function. The crossbar mode perfectly matches to any operation – especially to those under bad weather conditions or to emergency operations. It can be used for swing-free liftings of bigger components such as flotation devices of several dozen tonnes. These devices prevent the loss of equipment like pipes and cables underwater.
Next to the crossbar mode the manipulator can be used for more efficient material handling onboard.
