Each crane is fitted with a 62m-long main boom, and a luffing jib of 77m. 

The use of the derrick boom, with a suspended counterweight, allows the cranes to have "considerably higher lifting capacity".

Liebherr said the cranes were designed for operation in refineries, and would be delivered with external air-conditioning that would cool the cabin "even when the engine is switched off". 

The cranes will be delivered this May, Liebherr said in a statement.
