Rostock Becomes New Silk Road Hub with Liebherr Cranes
Euroports Germany GmbH & Co. KG (EPG)
Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH together with CIMC Raffles signed a contract concerning the delivery of a board offshore crane, type BOS 2600. The company BP will use the crane for supply and maintenance tasks on its Jack Up accommodation platform next to the African west coast.
The BOS 2600 is a compact and function-orientated crane design within the well-known Liebherr Offshore crane series and therefore the ideal solutions for platforms where space on deck is limited.
“Because of the particular requirements of this project, we are pleased that CIMC Raffles awarded us the contract for the project. With our product we have passed this challenge and fulfilled all contractual agreed specifications”, says Stefan Schneider, Area Sales Manager for Offshore Cranes. Further requirements for the crane are IECEx certification requirements for outside-assembled parts. The BOS 2600 has a lattice boom with a maximum working outreach of 54,5 metres and is equipped with Liebherr Litronic, the company’s in-house developed control system which is the centrepiece for precise crane operations.
