Jumbo-SAL-Alliance HLV ships Liebherr cranes to Angola
Jumbo-SAL-Alliance’s heavy lift vessel Frauke recently loaded two fully assembled Liebherr LHM 800 cranes (high rise version) in Rostock, Germany. Both cranes towering at a 57.05 metres height are destined for Luanda, Angola in South-West Africa.
The two units are set to be used for container handling at the Sogester Container Terminal. The LHM 800 currently is the largest mobile harbour crane in Liebherr’s product portfolio with a 64 m beam and a 9.6 m tower extension creating a maximum reach up to the 22nd container row.
Jumbo-SAL-Alliance’s engineering team also created tailor-made corner protectors to ensure safe and efficient lifting operations.According to the AIS data, Frauke departed Rostock on November 24, and is currently sailing in the South Atlantic ocean off Ivory Coast.
