Grenaa goes for green e-drive

Grenaa goes for green e-drive

(Posted on 02/12/20)

Grenaa is a port city on the Kattegat and forms the geographical centre of Denmark. The port of Grenaa is one of Denmark's largest commercial

and industrial ports. In October, the Port of Grenaa ordered a Liebherr mobile harbour crane type LHM 550.

As one of the existing cranes was no longer up to date, the port decided to upgrade its

equipment and increase its performance with new mobile harbour crane technology. For this

reason, the port authorities decided to purchase a Liebherr LHM 550 mobile harbour crane,

which is by far the most frequently sold model in the LHM portfolio with more than 250 units

The demand for sustainable, environmentally sensitive operation and for low-emission cargo

handling cranes is becoming increasingly important. Also, the Danish port of Grenaa wants to

strengthen its green profile with the locally emission-free drive. Before the LHM 550, which

was previously in service in Finland for three years, is delivered to the port of Grenaa, it is

given an upgrade at Liebherr's maritime headquarters in Rostock, Germany. Here the

LHM 550 will be fitted with an electric drive, which will significantly reduce future emissions

when handling goods.

With its 54 metres long boom and a maximum lifting capacity of 144 tonnes, the LHM 550

covers a wide range of handling options. In addition to the hydrostatic drive, the mobility of the

LHM is a decisive advantage for the customer. All wheel sets are individually steerable and

have load balancing, whereby the ground pressure for each wheel does not exceed six tonnes.

Furthermore, the 360° mobility ensures highest maneuverability. This is a decisive advantage

at all quays and terminals.

The Port of Grenaa

The port of Grenaa has a history of more than 200 years. It has grown from a fishing and

ferry port. Over the years the port has broadened its work to bulk activities as well as project

and stacking activities. The construction of the Anholt offshore wind farm in 2013 gave the

port of Grenaa national and international recognition as a thoroughly proficient wind turbine

port. This makes it one of Denmark’s leading industrial ports for wind turbine projects.

Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH is one of the leading European manufacturers of maritime material handling

solutions. The product range comprises ship, mobile harbour and offshore cranes.
