Heavy Lift Crane - HLC
The Liebherr heavy lift crane series (HLC) is designed especially for the installation of wind farms and for the oil and gas as well as the decommissioning sector.
The main characteristic of the HLC is its compact design. The HLC 295000 has a pedestal diameter of only 17 metres, and so does not require much space on deck. Despite this small footprint, it packs a punch, and can lift up to 5,000 tonnes at more than 30 metres outreach. This combination of compact design, high power and very low weight makes the HLC unique.
For the HLC series, the A-frame is available in a foldable version on customer request. This innovative feature allows passage under low bridges and reduces transit times.
In order to move smaller loads as efficiently as possible, the HLC series can optionally be equipped with one or more trolley hoists. "Trolley hoists" are also used, for example, in construction cranes. In contrast, however, the "trolley track" of the HLC is guided along the bottom of the main boom. In addition to the crane function, the "Trolley hoist winches" can also be used as constant pull winches for load stabilisation. The hoisting rope of the "Trolley hoist" is attached to the hoisting load and can be moved upwards with the hoisting load due to the travel capability of the trolley. This guarantees an optimum rope take-off angle to the hoisting load, so that it is optimally calmed down.
The cranes of the HLC series can optionally be equipped with numerous tugger winches to prevent and calm a vibrating load.
