Liebherr to deliver crane for Lukoil's Caspian Sea operations Energy
ROSTOCK, Germany -- Liebherr-Russland and Lukoil-Nizhnevolzhskneft have signed a new contract for the delivery of a Liebherr RL 1500-30 EX Litronic offshore crane, which is to start operations on a satellite platform at Ju. Korchagin oil and gas-condensate field in the Russian part of the Caspian Sea by the end of 2016.
With a load capacity of up to 30 tons, the Liebherr offshore crane RL 1500 features an unlimited 360° slewing range paired with a hydraulic ram luffing cylinder system. The crane provides a maximum outreach of 36 m from the rotation axis of the slewing platform. All this makes the RL 1500 an optimal solution for maintenance of open deck equipment on drilling and satellite platforms as well as for unloading supply vessels.
Manufactured at the specialized Liebherr plant in Rostock, Germany, the RL 1500-30 EX Litronic is designed as an explosion proof version for operation at temperatures from -30°С to +40.6°С and wind speeds of up to 25 m/sec.
