Crouching Tiger Rises

Liebherr dock cranes can also be mounted on floating pontoons, as here at Kalimantan, Indonesia. The coal arrives from inland on shallow barges (D), and is transhipped by two Liebherr CBG 300 dock cranes (B) to hoppers (C ) and then by conveyors to the ocean-going bulk carrier (A) . The cranes are installed on a 10m eccentric platform (D), which results in an extended outreach of up to 40m.
