Liebherr has started building the first unit of a new type of crane that can be used as a mobile harbour crane on the dockside or it can be mounted on a barge as an offshore crane.
The 400 tonne capacity TCC 14000-400 D Litronic was developed by Liebherr-Werk Nenzing on behalf of Liebherr-Russland in consultation with customer Lukoil-Kaliningradmorneft. Lukoil signed a contract for the new crane to be delivered by the end of 2012.
It was developed using existing technologies from Liebherr's offshore crane and mobile harbour crane product groups. The undercarriage uses the drive technology from a Liebherr mobile harbour crane with 48 wheel sets. It has a new structure with X-pattern outriggers giving a 22 x 22 metre support base.
Lifting capacity: 400 tonnes
Outreach: 70 metres
Lifting height: 68 metres
Dead weight: 1,100 tonnes
