Esbjerg Harbour invests in a mobile crane

Esbjerg Harbour invests in a mobile crane

The prospect of shipping out more than 500 wind turbines in 2016 has caused Esbjerg to expand its crane capacity with a mobile Liebherr 180-port crane. This means that the port's customers will soon have access to five mobile harbor cranes.

"In 2016, components will be shipped to more than 500 wind turbines from Esbjerg. This means that we must lift a lot of wind turbine blades, towers, nacelles and other components. Therefore, we need more crane capacity," said Port Director Ole Ingrisch.

The choice was a Liebherr 180 because of its speed and flexibility. The crane must help meet a growing need among the port's customers for crane assistance in connection with the shipping of wind turbine components and general cargo.

Today the port has four mobile harbor cranes, the largest of which can lift up to 150 tons. The new crane can lift 60 tons. The crane, which is from 2009, is bought in France and has operated in the port of Nantes. Esbjerg Harbour expects the crane to arrive at the port by ship mid-April.

"We looked at several options - both new and used cranes. The crane, which we have now purchased, we have judged to be the one where we get the best solution for a good price ", says Ole Ingrisch.
