Eurogate CTW order two Liebherr STS cranes


Eurogate Container Terminal Wilhelmshaven (CTW) has placed an order for two dual trolley ship to shore container (STS) cranes with Liebherr Container Cranes.

The cranes will be the first double trolley container cranes at CTW and will handle the world’s largest container vessels. 

The cabinless, automated cranes have a primary outreach of 73 metres and a lift height of 54.5 metres.

They also have a span of 30.48 metres and operational back reach with secondary trolley of 26 metres. 

The cranes are supplied with Liebherr Remote Operator Stations (ROS).

Designed for tandem operation, the primary trolley delivers containers automatically to the pinning platform. 

The containers rest on frames whilst the twist locks are removed. 

Once the pinning personnel leave the platform, they activate the secondary trolley, which automatically delivers the container to the landside Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).

The order is the latest project where Eurogate has relied on Liebherr for its container handling needs

Recent years have seen Liebherr supply over 20 STS cranes to Eurogate Terminals in Germany as well as eight STS cranes to Tanger Alliance in Morocco, where Eurogate is a shareholder. 

Significant growth in throughput is expected at CTW and Eurogate are expanding and modernising the terminal into an automated terminal.
