The partnership between Damen Shipyards and leading crane manufacturer Liebherr was celebrated with the announcement that Damen has ordered its 110th crane from Liebherr.

The two family-owned companies have worked together since 1985.

The 110th order was for a Liebherr CBG 350 crane, which will be installed on the new generation Transshipment Crane Barge 6324.

Member of the board of Liebherr-International AG, Patricia Rüf, and CCO Arnout Damen, both represent the third generation of their family-owned companies.

At the signing ceremony for the 110th order, Patricia Rüf said, “The common position of both our companies essentially follows the philosophy of creating the highest quality standards and we are proud that our cranes are installed on their vessels. We are confident that our cooperation will continue in the future and we are in no doubt that the continuous improvement of our ship crane portfolio will meet the requirements of next-generation vessels.”

The Transshipment Crane Barge 6324 was designed by the two companies, together with Pon Power for the generator sets, DMT Marine Equipment (winches) and Van der Leun (electrical systems). The 63-metre long vessel boasts 880m2 of deck space.
