Liebherr to start crane retrofit project

Liebherr to start crane retrofit project

Liebherr is set to retrofit an Eimskip container vessel with two new ship cranes.

The company’s ship crane department is expected to start retrofitting the Icelandic shipping company’s ship with the two CBW 2800 ship cranes in September this year.

The machines are able to handle cargo with a maximum outreach of 31.5 m and a maximum capacity of 60 tonnes.

They will be delivered with an additional rotator for faster and higher moving flexibility while handling reefer containers.

The vessel, which has a capacity of 698 teu and is 129 m long, will be put in service upon completion of the assembly.

The ship will be deployed for the reefer container traffic between the North of Europe and North America.

It was built by the Chinese Mawei Shipyard in 2008 and purchased by Eimskip from a German company in February this year.
