Port Nelson in New Zealand has ordered a classroom solution in order to simulate ship crane and mobile harbour operation. The simulator is a two-in one device, allowing for training on more aspects of real port operations, with both a generic ship crane simulator and the LiSIM version of the LHM 550 mobile harbour crane, both using much of the same hardware.
The ship crane simulation software features the CBG series, a floating four-rope grab crane with a boom length of 28 metres and a maximum lifting
capacity of up to 45 tons. The LHM 550 mobile harbour crane simulator is equipped with its original LiTronic crane controls and has training programme installed for basic operations, bulk, break-bulk and container
handling, reflecting the port’s present and future operations.
Simulators are globally recognised as an effective training method, offering
numerous advantages. The development of this sophisticated training tool
was prompted by Liebherr’s extensive experience in crane operator training.
Based on the original Litronic crane control system, LiSIM is the only
realistic virtual solution available on the market for learning the precise
and innovative control of Liebherr maritime cranes.
