Liebherr to supply six further RTGs to St. Petersburg’s OJSC Petrolesport


Supply of cranes will bring Liebherr‘s tally of RTGs at the Russain terminal to 10

Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has announced that it has received an order to deliver six Rubber Tyre Gantry Cranes (RTGs) to OJSC Petrolesport (PLP) in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The RTGs are of 16 wheel configuration, stack one over five containers high and span six containers plus a truck lane.

Liebherr already has 4 RTGs in operation at Petrolesport. The supply of these cranes will bring the total number of Liebherr RTG’s operating at the Global Ports-owned facility to ten.

The RTGs will be delivered later in the year, according to Liebherr.

Global Ports is currently undertaking an ambitious expansion project at PLP, which will see the capacity of the Russian container terminal increased to 2.3 million TEU.

Following Petrolesport’s investment programme in 2011-2012, a total of US$162 million will be invested in the continued development of PLP.
