Five mobile cranes

Happy Dragon carries five mobile cranes

BigLift Shipping moved five mobile cranes for leading crane manufacturers Liebherr and Gottwald from Germany and Belgium to Nigeria by Happy Dragon.

In order to accommodate all five cranes in one shipment, one of them was positioned on the tank top, thereby using the open hatch sailing capability. The total cargo volume loaded was 85,392 frts.

The three Liebherr cranes were LHM 550s of 24.8 x 15.3 x 40.6 metres, each weighing about 295 mton. These were loaded in two pieces, with the jibs stowed separately.

The two Gottwald GHMK 4406 cranes of 48.4 x 13.5 x 30.1 metres each and weighing about 275mton, were loaded in one piece
