Liebherr Expands in Netherlands


Equipment manufacturer Liebherr has recently supplied an LHM 420 mobile harbour crane to Pacorini Metals Terminals B.V. in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.

The crane has an outreach of 48 metres and provides a maximum lifting capacity of 84 tonnes. Tasks of the crane include container handling, as well as bulk operations.

Mark Doene, Commercial Manager for Pacorini Metals Terminals B.V., said: “The new LHM 420 plays a major role in our intra-port logistics chain.

“Due to the high performance of the crane we have vast capacity available to quickly load and unload all sorts of vessels. This remarkable investment also underlines our aim to provide best service to our customers.”

Hans-Jörg Schwarzler, Marketing Maritime Cranes at Liebherr, said: “Netherlands is an important market for Liebherr. Prior to this investment, the international company Pacorini ran through a detailed evaluation process and decided that the Liebherr LHM 420 is the best solution for them to meet current and future tasks.

The LHM 420 is a mighty tool for advanced cargo handling. The machine is capable of handling 1,500 tonnes of bulk material or 32 containers per hour in standard configuration, just by an easy exchange of the lifting attachment. For that reason also local trade will benefit as – in addition to the well-developed intermodal links – an important step of the logistics chain (loading and unloading of vessels) picks up the pace.”

Pacorini’s new LHM 420 is the first of its type in the Netherlands.

Pacorini offers a wide range of services all over the world, including warehousing, stevedoring, warranting and collateral management. It operates three facilities in the Netherlands where it mainly specialises in the handling and storage of non-ferrous metals, ferroalloys and minor metals.
