Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd has secured its first order for STS and RTG cranes in Peru – the equipment has been ordered by Port of Paita operator, Terminales Portuarios Euroandinos.

The order consists of 1 super post panama ship to shore crane (STS) and two rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTG), which are due for delivery at the end of this year.

The new cranes will join a pair of Liebherr mobile harbour cranes (LHM 550) that have already been delivered to the port.

Liebherr’s STS crane has a safe working load of 55 tonnes under a twin lift spreader. The RTGs are designed to allow simultaneous motion of all drives and are capable of long travel “inching”, thus eliminating the need for side shift on the spreader.

The cranes also feature Liebherr’s unique 8 rope reeving system that eliminates sway in hoist, trolley, long travel and skew directions.

The new cranes will allow the port to offer its clients substantially improved services for container and bulk handling. Liebherr says that its RTGs are capable of delivering container handling rates up to 40% higher than other models.

Elsewhere, Liebherr is investing in the development of its facilities with a new 16,400m2 production hall at its Killarney plant. The investment of €50m will include new state of the art equipment which will deliver a substantial increase in capacity at the end of this year.

The company’s managing director, Pat O’Leary, says that it’s an exciting time at Liebherr. “Demand for our container handling products continues to increase year on year, even though market demand overall has reduced."
