Liebherr Maritime Cranes recently delivered a new LHM 550 mobile harbor crane to the Port of Helsingborg, and two cranes of the same type were also delivered to the St. Petersburg Container Terminal.

The first delivery occurred at the end of August with the Port of Helsingborg receiving their new crane, that was shipped fully assembled by barge from the Liebherr facility in the Port of Rostock. The crane is equipped with a twin lift container spreader that can handle two 20’ containers at the same time. Apart from container handling the crane can be adapted for project cargo and different special lift applications.“The crane was ready for operation immediately after rolling off from the barge onto our new quay. Together with the new pier, this state-of-the-art mobile harbor crane provides the basis for further expansion of the container business in the Port of Helsingborg. We increased the container handling capacity by 50%”, said Niels Vallø, CEO Port of Helsingborg.

“The most decisive factor to opt for a LHM 550 is Liebherr’s arrangement of the drive system. The new crane is capable of running either on electricity or diesel, a feature which we highly value. The diesel engine gives us the freedom to move and position the crane at any pier we want. Once in place, we connect the crane to the main power supply, switch on the e-drive and operate the crane with eco-friendly energy”, concluded Niels Vallø, CEO Port of Helsingborg.

At around the same time, the St. Petersburg Container Terminal took delivery of two new Liebherr mobile harbor cranes, also shipped fully assembled from the Liebherr factory in Rostock. “Both cranes are equipped with a low voltage electric main drive. Plug in and turn the e-drive on. As long you have electricity the crane will work, but also in case you don’t have power there is still the diesel engine ensuring your operation never stops”, says Maxim Kim, Area Manager of Liebherr Maritime Cranes.
