New heavy lift crane from Liebherr

(Posted on 31/05/18)

The new LPS 420 E is the latest extension of the Liebherr mobile harbour crane product range. The newly designed machine is a purely electric driven portal crane. It is a universal all-rounder and a key asset for handling every type of cargo, from containers to bulk, general cargo and heavy lifts up to 124t. The forward-looking machine is designed for ports and terminals with an electrical infrastructure.

The LPS 420 E raises the bar in terms of electrical driven bulk handling performance. With a turnover of up to 1,200t/hr, the new Liebherr electric crane exceeds the average turnover of comparable electric driven cranes in the market. With a maximum outreach of up to 48m, ships with a size of up to Panamax class can be served. This makes the crane the ideal electrical driven solution for bulk handling – local emission-free.

The LPS 420 E impresses with some decisive technical advantages that will please every customer. The main components of the E-drive are liquid cooled and the heat is dissipated by heat exchangers. The fully closed liquid cooling system, in combination with the heat exchanger, is installed on top of the slewing platform. As such, no overpressure unit is necessary to prevent dust coming inside the machinery house, which is a big benefit for cranes working in a dusty environment.
