Ship cranes manufacturer Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH together with China's Yantai CIMC Raffles Shipyard signed a contract concerning the delivery of a board offshore crane, type BOS 2600.

The German maritime cranes maker said BP will use the crane for supply and maintenance tasks on a jack-up accommodation platform off the coast of West Africa.

The BOS 2600 is a compact and function-orientated crane design within the well-known Liebherr Offshore crane series and therefore the ideal solutions for platforms where space on deck is limited.

"Because of the particular requirements of this project, we are pleased that CIMC Raffles awarded us the contract for the project. With our product we have passed this challenge and fulfilled all contractual agreed specifications," said Stefan Schneider, Area Sales Manager for Offshore Cranes.

Further requirements for the crane are IECEx certification requirements for outside-assembled parts.

The BOS 2600 has a lattice boom with a maximum working outreach of 54.5 meters and is equipped with Liebherr Litronic, the company's in-house developed control system.
