Four Liebherr BOS offshore cranes delivered to Azerbaijan
A total of four Board Offshore Cranes offshore cranes found their way from Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock’s facility to the Umid Babek Operating Company (UBOC) in Azerbaijan. Two BOS 2600 and two BOS 4200 offshore cranes were transported by E-ship 1, a cargo ship equipped with two Liebherr ship cranes and four Flettner rotorsails. UBOC will use the four cranes at its Umid-2 gas project in Azairbaijan.
“This was a technically very demanding project that met the high safety requirements of the oil and gas industry. The successful delivery is a testament to Liebherr’s expertise and professionalism,” comments Stefan Schneider, Liebherr Global Application Manager General Purpose Offshore Cranes. “We were very pleased with the successful cooperation. The collaboration involving the technical clarification and commercial negotiations in the run-up, to the conclusion of the contract and final delivery, was characterised by great professionalism and a goal-oriented approach on both sides,” Schneider continues.
The BOS series is known for its modular design with standardised components and high reliability. The crane design is certified by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and meets the requirements of the API design code.
Both cranes, the BOS 2600 and the BOS 4200, have a lattice boom with a maximum outreach of 48 metres on the main hoist and 53 metres on the auxiliary hoist. They are electro-hydraulically driven and equipped with Liebherr Litronic, a control system for precise crane operation.
