Liebherr Container Cranes received an order for two megamax ship to shore (STS) container cranes for the MSC Gate Terminal Bremerhaven
The cranes which are due for handover before the end of 2020 have an outreach of 73 m (25 container rows), a backreach of 25 m, a span of 30.48 m and a lift height over rail of 51.2 m which makes them amongst the largest cranes sold by Liebherr.
Earlier this year, EUROGATE placed an order with Liebherr for 6 megamax STS Cranes for their container terminal in Hamburg. The cranes will be delivered and handed over by the summer of 2020. In 2018, Liebherr delivered six similar ultra large STS cranes to the North Sea Terminal, Bremerhaven and have received an order for an additional four cranes, due for handover next year.
The cranes for MSC Gate Bremerhaven will mark the 22nd and 23rd large ship to shore crane delivered since the start of 2017 when the first two of five STS cranes were delivered to HHLA Container Terminal Tollerort in Hamburg.
Garry Bunyan, Sales and Marketing Manager, Liebherr, said, "Recent years have seen Liebherr establish and grow our presence at a number of different ports and terminals in the North Sea. (…) we look forward to building on our recent successes in the region."
