Liebherr’s LHM 120 is the smallest in its mobile harbour crane product range

Liebherr has a history of supplying OCHA with training equipment: in 2007 the OCHA bought a Liebherr FCC 230 fixed cargo crane and, in 2015, it bought a Liebherr LiSIM simulator.

The latest addition, the LHM120, is the smallest machine in the Liebherr mobile harbour crane product range. It has a maximum lifting capacity of up to 42 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 30 metres.

OCHA training centre manager Ann Baats commented, “Liebherr is an important provider of maritime cranes in the port of Antwerp and its importance is growing. As a result, the demand for high quality Liebherr crane driver training has risen tremendously. The installation of the additional Liebherr crane enables OCHA to increase its mobile crane training capacity. The new LHM120 also allows OCHA to combine the simulator training with intensive training in the crane… This way of training enhances the learning curve significantly with high returns on productivity, safety and quality for our clients.”
