In the field of oil and gas production, heavy lift and subsea, Liebherr offers a variety of offshore cranes to meet the requirements of the market. Liebherr offshore cranes are able to handle loads of up to 5,000 t. They can operate in water depths of up to 3.600 m. The product range includes ram and rope luffing models, conventional and kingpost machines, and can be configured to suit the most hazardous production areas, whether on fixed or floating installations. The direct link of our production site in Rostock to the Baltic Sea provides the best logistic condition - above all for worldwide sales of large equipment.
A compact and function-orientated design as well as Liebherr's in-house developed Litronic control system make the board offshore crane series (BOS) from Liebherr one the most successful products in the offshore crane segment. The BOS is a conventional slew bearing crane with a cable luffing mechanism and can be powered electro-hydraulically or diesel-hydraulically.
The Liebherr heavy lift crane series (HLC) is designed especially for the installation of wind farms and for the oil and gas as well as the decommissioning sector.
The ram luffing knuckle boom crane series (RL-K) was developed especially for the oil and gas industry. Applications include supply and maintenance work as well as pipe handling. The unique design of the knuckle boom optimises the working radius and increases the flexibility of the crane. With a tail swing radius of less than 3 metres the RL-K 2600 is the most compact crane of this series.
