Liebherr delivers further cranes to Russian ports
Liebherr delivers two STS cranes to Vladivostok, and recieves orders from Novorossiysk and St. Petersburg
Liebherr Container Cranes recently delivered and commissioned two Panamax STS cranes in Vladivostok and has taken orders for further STS cranes to be delivered to Novorossiysk and St. Petersburg.
“Indeed we have received numerous repeat orders for both our ship to shore and stacking cranes from east, west and southern Russia.”
“This level of business is however, nothing new for Liebherr and is testament to the quality, availability, longevity and the low lifetime costs of our cranes.”
The cranes delivered to the JSC Commercial Port of Vladivostok have gone into operation at the port and join a pair of Liebherr RMG cranes in operation since 2011.
The new cranes have an outreach of 38 meters, a back reach of 11 meters and have a span of 15.3 meters. The 60t twinlift cranes have a spreader height over rail of 28m and all drives are Liebherr A.C.
Meanwhile Liebherr has taken an order to deliver a second post-Panamax crane to JSC Nutep in Novorossiysk. The crane, which is identical to a previous Liebherr STS crane commissioned in 2009, has an outreach of 46 meters, a backreach of 15 meters and a span of 15.24 meters.
In St. Petersburg, Liebherr has also signed a major contract with OJSC Petrolesport for the supply of three Panamax STS cranes, which have an outreach of 38.5 meters, a backreach of 15meters, and a span of 22.5 meters.
The new STS cranes will join 10 Liebherr RTG’s (model RT 6/5/4/ws) already at the port and five further Liebherr RTG’s (model RT 7/5/4/ws) which are scheduled for delivery over the next few months.
