Liebherr mobile harbour cranes played a significant role in the overall success of the Liebherr Maritime Cranes division in 2013. Close to 80 mobile harbour cranes were delivered across the world in 2013, helping generate a turnover of -Ç280 million
($378 million). The 2013 figures were helped by a number of major orders for the 600 series in Latin America and the launch of the Liebherr maritime cranes simulator range. In 2013, 12 units of the Liebherr LHM 600 were sold in the Latin American market, including three barge slewing (LBS) cranes.
Other areas that helped the success was Liebherr´s LiSIM simulator-based crane driver training. The maritime crane simulators are used to help improve port safety and productivity. Crane types that can be simulated include, mobile harbour cranes, ship-to-shore, rubber-tyred gantry and offshore cranes. Liebherr has an order backlog worth -Ç150 million ($203 million), higher than in 2012, according to the company.
