Double girder slewing cranes – MPG
The MPG double girder cranes from Liebherr combine speed, safety and economy. Thanks to their high outreach they provide a high level of efficiency for the handling of dry bulk cargo on transfer vessels and are particularly effective on transshippers.
Advantages at a glance
Higher efficiency and speed
The double girder design of the MPG means that there is no need for a luffing mechanism which means no luffing ropes. This considerably reduces the grab swing during slewing motions in comparison to conventional slewing cranes. The Litronic Robot Control (LRC) system developed by Liebherr supports the crane operator with programmable travel markers and so increases productivity.
Better overview and higher outreach
The unique double girder design provides the Liebherr MPG with an optimal outreach for loading and unloading Capesize vessels with a width of up to 45 metres. The strategic positioning of the driver’s cabin ensures a clear view of the loading area and so reduces hazardous situations onboard and accelerates the work process.
