Qube buys Liebherr crane for Bell Bay

Liebherr LHM 420 The Liebherr LHM 420 type mobile harbour crane provides a maximum lifting capacity of 124t

Qube Ports has brought a Liebherr mobile harbour crane to improve operating capacity at the Port of Bell Bay in Tasmania, Australia.

For the handling of project cargo, the LHM 420 type crane provides a maximum lifting capacity of 124t at an outreach of up to 16m and with a maximum reach of 48m.

"Our partnership with Qube goes from strength to strength," commented Leopold Berthold, managing director of sales in Rostock, Germany.

This is the eighth mobile harbour crane the Australian port solution provider has purchased from Liebherr and the container handling machine will be equipped with a twin-lift spreader.

Qube Ports' other Liebherr mobile harbour cranes are based in Darwin, Bunbury, Port Hedland, Geraldton and Fremantle. The company also recently ordered twelve-wheel loaders from Liebherr.

Mr Berthold added: "We hope to also support them with the new LRS 545 Reachstacker or with the upcoming Liebherr Log Handler."

Qube Ports has services and facilities in 28 Australian ports, together with cargo storage, materials handling and distribution operations all over Australia.
