Liebherr Delivers 2 Board Offshore Cranes for Canadian Integrated Energy Company’s FPSO

Liebherr has successfully sold two Board Offshore Cranes, type BOS 2600, to a Canadian customer. The Liebherr BOS 2600 cranes have been acquired by an integrated energy company located in Canada, and are destined for an FPSO unit operating off the coast of Newfoundland. The BOS crane series is one of the latest series of Liebherr offshore cranes and is known for its reliability and versatile deployment possibilities, the perfect choice for the FPSO unit in harsh environments.

The BOS 2600 cranes will replace two well served Liebherr Compact Board Offshore (CBO) cranes that have been in service since 2006 and will contribute to safety and reliability on the Floating Production Storage Offloading unit (FPSO).

The Compact Board Offshore cranes with their distinctive A-frame design have reached the end of their useful life after almost two decades in continuous operation. The cranes were commissioned in 2006. Since then, the two cranes from the CBO series have been providing service and are now replaced.

Liebherr was able to offer a convincing solution with the BOS series 2600 models. With a possible maximum reach of up to 60m and a lifting capacity of up to 100t, the BOS 2600 is suitable for dynamic lifting when servicing platforms, jack-up platforms or drilling rigs, for example, as well as for work on board.

The BOS series is characterized by a modular design with standardised components for maximum reliability. These include the overload protection system (MOPS & AOPS) and Liebherr Litronic, the crane management system for highly efficient operation. “We always strive to meet our customer’s needs. We have been able in developing a customized solution that focuses on ease of maintenance without compromising on other aspects,” expresses Stefan Schneider, Global Application Manager General Purpose Offshore Cranes at Liebherr in Rostock.


The BOS 2600 features various technical specifications, such as a special drop hatch that makes it easier to replace or repair the winch or a special platform that makes it easier to change the windscreen wipers.
