Big mobile crane.

The largest harbour crane in the UK arrived at Able Seaton Port on Thursday 20 February, marking a major step forward in Able UK’s expansion of its port facilities on both the Tees and the Humber.

The multi-million Leibherr LHM600SHL mobile crane was being delivered from Rostock in Germany. It has been specially adapted to meet Able’s specialist requirements…it is able to lift 208 tonnes, has a 58 metres radius with its hook height increased from the standard 45 metres to 64 metres, together with an increased fulcrum height in order to reach over tall structures such as semi-submersible oil rigs. It will be used for wide range of activities associated with handling project cargo, particularly components for the offshore wind sector, as well as maintaining offshore oil and gas drilling rigs and other general port-related activities.

Is it truly mobile or, is it capable of being moved?

I've not been able to find an image or a detailed description yet.

It seems that it might be a 'one off'.

Here's one:- http://www.trucks-cranes.nl/english/rhblhm600.html
