By Sarah Ann McCay25 March 2012
Liebherr has received its 1,000th order for a mobile harbour crane. The LPS 550 is destined for the Montoir Bulk Terminal in France.
The order came from Montoir parent company SEA-invest Group, one of the world's largest terminal operators for dry bulk, fruit and liquid bulk, operating 25 ports spread across three continents.
The LPS 550 has a capacity of 144 tonnes and a 48 metre boom. It gets Pactronic, a hybrid drive system that boosts performance and reduces emissions at the same time, Liebherr said.
