Four Liebherr ship-to-shore cranes for UK port


Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has secured an order for the supply of four Megamax ship-to-shore container cranes to Associated British Ports, Southampton, UK.

The order comes on the back of a new UK ship-to-shore productivity record which was set by a Liebherr megamax ship-to-shore crane at the Port of Southampton, on 17 October when the crane moved a total of 651 containers, which equates to over 54 containers an hour in a 12-hour shift.

Pat O’Leary, managing director, Liebherr Container Cranes, said: “Liebherr is delighted to have been awarded this contract which will bring the number of Liebherr STS at the Port of Southampton to 10. This order reflects the confidence which ABP and DP World Southampton have in the ability of the Liebherr product to deliver their requirements in respect of performance and customer service.”

The cranes will be operational early in 2014 and will be able to work the largest vessels of up to 24 rows. They will have an outreach of 65m, a span of 35m and a backreach of 16m, giving a total trolley travel of 116m. The cranes have a lift height over rail of 47.5m.
