|Liebherr’s new fixture at Antwerp Port|
|Tuesday, 06 July 2010 16:02|
DP World Antwerp has officially commissioned its first Mobile Harbour Crane on a portal (LPS 500) for service from Austrian maritime crane giant, Liebherr.
The Liebherr Portal Slewing Crane (LPS) is a combination of a space-saving portal (mounted on rails) and the mobile harbour crane concept, particularly on narrow quays, individual portal solutions permit (railway) trains and (road) trucks to travel below the portal.
The portal, tailored exactly to the infrastructure requirements of the customer, has a rail span of 11 metres, enough space to let pass two trains next to each other under the crane. This design offers unprecedented ease of operation in a full range of general cargo applications.
A lifting capability of up to 104 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 51 metres make it ideal for transhipment at multipurpose terminals like this one.
The Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes are also the only cranes among its competitors to offer a synchronizing crane control system allowing two mobile harbour cranes to be operated simultaneously by one crane driver.
DP World Antwerp is one of the leading general cargo stevedores in the Port of Antwerp.
