Liebherr mobile harbour (MH)cranes set the benchmark in terms of annual deliveries, supplying as many cranes per year as no other manufacturer has ever delivered before. In 2014, Liebherr supplied 112 units of mobile harbour cranes across the globe. In other words, throughout the year, almost every third day a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane unit was delivered. This is the highest number of annual deliveries ever achieved by a mobile harbour crane manufacturer and clearly tops Liebherr Maritime Cranes´ old record when 102 units were supplied in 2008.
A geographical breakdown shows that Europe (including Russia) is again the main region for mobile harbour cranes. In total, 42 units were supplied to this area, which is nearly 38 per cent of all deliveries in 2014. Second is the African market, where 33 units (almost 30 per cent) started operation last year.
