Australian heavy lift and logistic company Joyce Krane recently ordered an LHM 280 mobile harbour crane from Liebherr to help them their ambitions to move into the maritime sector.
The LHM 280 mobile harbour crane will be used for quayside operation in Dampier, Western Australia.
The mobile harbour crane will come in the 64-tonne version, which is capable of handling offshore support equipment. It will also be equipped to handle standard 20′ and 40′ containers with a RAM spreader.
The pad arrangement is designed specifically for the quay, and it has a number of options selected to meet the requirements of the offshore supply base, such as external weight display and operator sign-in.
Joyce Krane have decided to have the new LiDAT smartApp installed on their new machine, which is an IT solution that supports port terminals in analysing and optimising cargo handling processes, performed by Liebherr mobile harbour cranes.
They opted for the smartApp maintenance package, which shows detailed information about machine operation hours, filling levels and temperatures.
The extended machine reports allow the maintenance manager to precisely plan times for maintenance and refuelling, which avoids unnecessary downtimes and save money. It also ensures good service support for fairly remote locations.
“We are more than happy with our Liebherr mobiles and have been dealing with the Liebherr Ehingen factory for years,” said Sean Joyce, operations manager at Joyce Krane.
“Dealing with Rostock wasn’t so different, just the equipment changed. We’re really looking forward to getting to use it.”
The crane will arrive in Dampier beginning of 2019.
