Joyce Krane Moves into Maritime Sector
(Posted on 11/09/18)
The family business Joyce Krane from Karratha recently ordered an LHM 280 Mobile Harbour Crane. The well-known Australian heavy lift and logistic company has been a Liebherr customer of mobile cranes for many years and is now opting for its first Liebherr maritime crane.
Joyce Krane, an Australian heavy-lift and logistics specialist with more than 40 years of experience, is a long-standing Liebherr customer for mobile cranes. Joyce Krane from Karratha recently ordered an LHM 280 Mobile Harbour Crane for quayside operation in Dampier, Western Australia. The LHM 280 will come in the 64 tonnes version, be capable of handling offshore support equipment, but will also be equipped to handle standard 20’ and 40’ containers with a RAM spreader. The pad arrangement is designed specifically for the quay, and it has a number of options selected to meet the requirements of the offshore supply base, such as external weight display and operator sign-in.
Joyce Krane decided to have the new LiDAT smartApp installed on their new machine. The Liebherr smartApp is an IT solution which supports port terminals in analysing and optimising cargo handling processes, performed by Liebherr mobile harbour cranes. With LiDAT smartApp, it’s possible to analyse your crane data and get answers from it almost immediately.
The Australian company opted for the smartApp maintenance package which shows detailed information about machine operation hours, filling levels and temperatures. The extended machine reports allow the maintenance manager to precisely plan times for maintenance and refuelling. This avoids unnecessary downtimes and saves money. It also ensures good service support for a fairly remote location.
“We are more than happy with our Liebherr mobiles and have been dealing with the Liebherr Ehingen factory for years,” comments Sean Joyce, Operations Manager at Joyce Krane. “Dealing with Rostock wasn’t so different, just the equipment changed. We’re really looking forward to getting to use it.” “I visited the Rostock factory mid of 2017,” added his brother James Joyce, General Manager of Joyce Krane. “It’s a modern facility, and with its own quayside, it makes the despatch of the cranes so much easier.”
The crane will arrive in Dampier beginning of 2019.
