LIEBHERR handed over the 100th Liebherr mobile harbour 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 harbour cranes.

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

The history of the Liebherr mobile harbour crane in Spain started more than 27 years ago. In 1992 Liebherr delivered its first mobile harbour crane to Spain, an LHM 1300.


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

“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.”
