Thanks to many years of experience and customer-oriented engineering, Liebherr mobile harbour crane technology sets new standards in innovation and quality. The Liebherr LHM 600 mobile harbour crane from Sims Metal Management is equipped with a 750 kW Liebherr diesel engine that complies with the latest Tier 4 final emissions standard. The crane is equipped with a maximum lifting capacity of up to 144 tonnes. In 4-rope grab operation, up to 75 tonnes are available – making the LHM 600 from Sims the most powerful Mobile Harbour Crane on a barge in the U.S.
The Liebherr Pactronic hybrid system is installed as an additional power booster in the new machine from Sims Meteal Management. Its main feature is an additional energy storage device, the accumulator. The accumulator is charged when the load is lowered and by surplus power from the conventional drive unit. The Liebherr Pactronic system is an impressive power amplifier. Both lifting and lowering speeds are significantly increased despite the fact that the primary power output remains the same.
Sims Metal Management also benefits from the Liebherr analysis software LiDAT smartApp. The smartApp is an IT-solution for the analysis and optimisation of cargo handling processes. With LiDAT smartApp it is possible to analyse crane data and initiate process improvements.
