"Due to the current pandemic situation worldwide, the engineer from the head office, Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH in Germany, was unable to attend in person, so all provisions were made, so that he could nevertheless be on hand to provide any support and assistance required. Cameras were installed on site, daily meetings were held to discuss the pending tasks, and the new Remote Service tool was ready for its first crane assembly," the crane manufacturer wrote in a press release.

This means all Liebherr customers with maritime cranes, deep foundation equipment and crawler cranes up to capacities of 300 t now have the opportunity to use the Remote Service App free of charge until the end of 2020. A laptop, tablet or smartphone and an Internet connection are all that are needed," the company added.
