Largest Liebherr material handler in France delivered to job site

  • by

The largest Liebherr material handling machine to be delivered in France to date, an LH 110 M Port Litronic, will be operated at the harbour of Villefranche-sur-Saône in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, near Lyon.

The company, which has maintained a commercial relationship with Liebherr since 2002, selected the LH 110 M Port, a new material handling machine with an operational weight of around 110 tons from the port equipment product line. Besides the high level of product quality, FlorentDupré was impressed by the openness and competence of the local Liebherr representative, Tecmat Service.

Themachine: LH 110 M PortLitronic

The new Liebherr LH 110 M Port material handling machine was designed especially for handling bulk goods and general cargo in port handling operations. At the same time, the 13 metre angled boom and the 12 metre straight stick give the machine a reach of up to 23.8 metres, allowing it to cover an extensive working area when loading and unloading ships. Outrigger support on the front and rear mobile undercarriage and optimized weight distribution between the upper carriage, undercarriage and equipment provide for maximum stability in working operation and contribute to an above-average handling capacity.

The LH 110 M Port at the harbour in Villefranche-sur-Saône is presented as a powerful and efficient machine. The equipment includes the standard, innovative Liebherr energy recovery (ERC) system. This boosts the system performance, providing for greater handling capacity and at the same time allowing energy savings of up to 30 percent. The 300 kW / 408 hp, Stage V emissions compliant Liebherr construction machinery diesel engine allows the material handling machine to mobilize a total output of 478 kW in combination with the ERC system.

Improved cab: maximum operating comfort

Another highlight of the LH 110 M Port is the freely variable height-adjustable double-parallelogram hydraulic driver’s cab with sliding door. Its large window areas give the operator in the harbour optimum view upwards, forwards and downwards. The double-parallelogram cab can be moved forward up to 4 metres for an even better view to the front, for example over a ship’s side. Moreover, it also offers the operator safe and simple access from the ground. The ergonomic driver’s seat, the intuitive colour touchscreen display and the standard proportional controls and joystick steering all contribute to the comfortable operation and precise control of the Liebherr material handler.

Ceremonial handover of the keys

The official handover of the LH 110 M Port took place at the harbour in Villefranche-sur-Saône at the end of 2020. During the ceremony, Martin Schickel (managing director of Liebherr-France SAS) and Franck Lafabrie (managing director of Tecmat Service) presented a symbolic key to the new Liebherr material handling machine to the harbour manager, FlorentDupré.
