Swiss multinational equipment manufacturer Liebherr has delivered its 100th mobile harbour crane to be sold in Spain, an LHM 600 for shipping company Maritima del Principado.

The ceremony took place in Gijón, Spain. The new machine is an LHM 600 and belongs to Generation 5, the latest technical development stage in the Liebherr Mobile Harbour Crane program.

Spain is now the third country in the world, alongside Russia and India, with a fleet of 100 or more Liebherr mobile harbour cranes.

The history of the Liebherr mobile harbour crane in Spain started more than 27 years ago. In the Year 1992 Liebherr delivered its first mobile harbour 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.

“Today the population of mobile harbour cranes in Spain is at a high level of 179 machines in total,” comments Andreas Müller, Sales Director of Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes. “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.”
