Liebherr delivers four electric RTGs to Italy

Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has announced the handover of four electric Rubber-Tyred Gantry cranes (ERTG) to customers in Italy.

One ERTG has been delivered to Salerno Container Terminal (SCT), controlled by Gallozzi Group, while three have been delivered to Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers, Naples (Conateco), an MSC company.

The cranes were handed over in recent weeks and will reportedly make a valuable contribution to the economies of Southern Italy and beyond.

The ERTG delivered to SCT will work container stacks 10 wide and 6 high. It is amongst the largest RTGs delivered by Liebherr.

Like the three ERTGS delivered to Naples, the machines have a hybrid powertrain, operating on both diesel and electricity via cable reeling drum.

This offers emission-free container handling when connected to the grid and delivers substantial energy savings through onboard power regeneration.

The ERTG for SCT is the latest Liebherr machine to be delivered to the terminal and joins four Liebherr Harbour Mobile cranes in container handling configuration and six Liebherr reachstackers already at the port.

The new Liebherr RTGs are set to streamline operations, improve cargo handling capacity, and contribute to the economic growth of the local hinterland, according to Liebherr.

Last month, Liebherr Container Cranes announced its partnership with Rijeka Gateway, supplying the terminal in Croatia with remote control yard cranes.

More recently, Brazil’s Porto Chibatão took delivery of four cranes from Liebherr, adding to its fleet of 16 barge-slewing operational cranes at the port.
