Liebherr delivered the 100th Liebherr mobile harbor crane, a new LHM 600, to the Spanish customer Maritima del Principado in Gijón. Spain is now the third country in the world, alongside Russia and India, with a fleet of 100 or more Liebherr mobile harbor cranes.

The new machine is an LHM 600 and belongs to Generation 5, the latest technical development stage in the Liebherr Mobile Harbor Crane program.

The history of the Liebherr mobile harbor crane in Spain started more than 27 years ago. In the Year 1992 Liebherr delivered its first mobile harbor crane to Spain. It was an LHM 1300. The crane was like many Liebherr products a pioneer of its time. A highly innovative and reliable crane in the market. The LHM 1300 proves its durability every day again, because it is still in operation in Spain.

100 or more Liebherr mobile harbor cranes
There are only two other countries in the world that have a fleet of Liebherr mobile harbor cranes of 100 or even more machines. The first country to reach this magical mark was Russia, closely followed by India. With the recent handover of the LHM 600 to Maritima del Principado, Liebherr was now able to support 100 customers in Spain with its effective Mobile Harbor Crane technology. There will certainly be many more satisfied customers to follow.
