The company handed over the 100th Liebherr mobile harbour crane to the Spanish customer Maritima del Principado in Gijón.
Spain became the third country in the world, alongside Russia and India, with a fleet of 100 or more of the manufacturer's cranes. The new machine is an LHM 600 and belongs to Generation 5, the latest technical development stage in the Liebherr Mobile Harbour Crane programme.
First mobile harbour crane produced by the company reached Spain in 1992, over 27 years ago. It remains operational to this day.
"Today the population of mobile harbour cranes in Spain is at a high level of 179 machines in total. We at Liebherr maritime cranes are very proud to have achieved a market share of more than 55%. This great trust of our customers in us and our products and services shows that the Liebherr company philosophy is also lived in Spain", commented Andreas Müller, Sales Director, Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes.
