Biggest mobile harbour crane in Norway to date

Liebherr has signed an agreement with Norwegian port operator Karmsund Havn IKS to supply what is touted as the biggest mobile harbour crane yet delivered in Norway, a Liebherr LHM 550

With a maximum lifting capacity of up to 154 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 54m, the crane can be operated with diesel or electric motors and will mainly be used for container handling.


In January 2019, a new container terminal and a new ro-ro terminal will be opened at Karmsund Port’s Haugesund Cargo Terminals, Husøy and it will be equipped with the new LHM 550. Furthermore, the port authority has an option for four additional cranes until 2023.

The crane will be operated mainly on electricity, which corresponds with Karmsund Port Authority’s vision that the port should, as far as possible, be operated under the principles “lean, clean, green." It will be able to operate the entire dock area at Husøy, and is equipped for handling containers, bulk cargo and project loads.


The crane has been sold with a Liebherr service contract. This includes short response times and fast delivery of spare parts if required.
