Lindø port of Odense gets prepared with Liebherr

(Posted on 22/11/19)

Lindø port of Odense is Denmarks largest port by area. It compromises 6.4 million

square metres and will be further expanded within 2020 for ongoing developments. The

port is located strategically between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea and offers world

class facilities to the offshore wind industry. In order to be geared for future offshore

wind turbines Lindø port of Odense has just signed a purchase agreement on the

world's largest port mobile crane at Liebherr in Rostock.  

The unique and custom-built heavy lift mobile harbour crane type LHM 800 is equipped

with a high-rise tower extension that makes it to the world's largest and strongest

mobile harbour crane ever built by the German manufacturer Liebherr. The huge piece

of Liebherr mobile harbour crane technology has a lifting capacity of up to 308 tonnes

and a lifting height of 96.7 meters above quay thanks to a custom-made multi-layer

 

With the purchase of the world's largest mobile harbour crane, Lindø port of Odense

has the strongest and biggest mobile harbour crane and is thus geared to deal with the

future offshore wind turbines. The built-in electric motor of the LHM 800 simultaneously

saves Lindø port of Odense up to 300 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year and makes

the crane emission free at the same time as the power is produced by windmills. With

the installed 300 metres cable drum, the crane can travel up to 600 metres at the quay.

 

The crane complements the port's existing crane portfolio. In combination with the

current Liebherr LHM 550 mobile harbour crane, the new crane will enable the Lindø

port of Odense to cope with the huge offshore wind turbines of tomorrow in tandem lift

mode. As one of the few ports in the world, Lindø will be able to lift 400-ton nacelles to

offshore wind farms exclusively with mobile cranes, and at the same time, the mega

crane offers good opportunities for maximum use of the new port extension. For the

major customers of Lindø port of Odense, the new LHM 800 also means faster

handling of steel scrap and thus thus shorter quay lay times for the ships.

“With the purchase of the new mega crane, LINDØ port of ODENSE is cementing its

key role as one of the world's largest port players in the green transition with unique

production facilities for the future of the future offshore wind turbines. We can see that

the good sizes are getting bigger and bigger. We are meeting that development now

with this investment so that we can continue to contribute to facilitating green

workplaces within sustainable energy production,” says Carsten Aa, CEO at Lindø port

of Odense.
