Liebherr celebrates TCC 78000 inauguration

Liebherr celebrates TCC 78000 inauguration

(Posted on 03/09/19)

During a recent ceremony, Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH officially inaugurated its new heavy-duty gantry crane TCC 78000

at the Rostock Overseas Port. It will not only support the family business

Liebherr with the loading and assembly of ever larger maritime cranes from its

own production, but will also offer other companies the opportunity to handle

heavy loads at Rostock Port.

“Three, two, one... go" - On this command the Minister of Economics, Employment and

Health of the state of Mecklenburg- Western Pomerania, Harry Glawe together with his

colleague Mr. Christian Pegel, Minister for Energy, Infrastructure and Digitisation of

Mecklenburg- Western Pomerania and Mrs. Patricia Rüf as well as Mrs. Stéfanie

Wohlfarth as members of the Liebherr family pressed the blue button at the foot of the

164-metre-high heavy-duty gantry crane. A horn sounds and the TCC 78000 begins to

raise a large Liebherr flag to a height of over 120 metres. The official inauguration

ceremony marks the beginning of a new era in heavy load handling for Liebherr

Rostock and the Port of Rostock.

"Thanks to its unique combination of lifting height and capacity, the TCC 78000 has the

best technical potential available to safely and economically assemble and load the

next generation of maritime cranes," summarised Leopold Berthold, Managing Director

of Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH, in his welcoming speech.

TCC is the abbreviation for Travelling Cargo Crane. The rail-mounted heavy-duty crane

will move on a portal between the northern Liebherr plant site and the adjacent quay

edge. With its maximum lifting capacity of 1,600 tonnes and a total height of 164

metres with the jib raised, the TCC 78000 will characterise the appearance of Rostock

harbour in future. Equipped with a double bogeys (two rails per side) and a track gauge

of 30 metres, the gantry crane provides optimum flexibility for handling all types of large

Liebherr is not the only one benefiting from these new and important perspectives. The

rail-mounted gantry crane will also offer other companies the opportunity to handle

heavy loads at Rostock Port.

"With this impressive crane, the Hanseatic City of Rostock has gained another

landmark, which at the same time is a symbol for the success story of Liebherr in the

overseas port of Rostock. The heavy-duty gantry crane improves the opportunities for

further company settlements and the acquisition of extremely heavy project cargoes.

This potential must be enhanced together," says Dr. Gernot Tesch, Managing Director

of ROSTOCK PORT GmbH.

The installation of the TCC 78000 is also an investment for Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock

GmbH in the new heavy-duty handling industry. The new offered service will have a

positive impact on the port of Rostock and the entire region.

Overall, Liebherr is investing around 45 million euros in the new crane system.
