Liebherr Container Cranes and Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership (MGT) have signed a contract for the supply of four ship to shore (STS) container cranes to the Cast Container Terminal in Montreal, Canada. The cranes will be delivered in 2021.
The Port of Montreal has experienced increased container traffic for a number of years and forecasts show that this trend will continue. Investment in quality infrastructure is key to handling this increased demand for the future, a Liebherr statement noted.
The four new cranes will handle the largest container vessels currently visiting the Port of Montreal and are future proofed to handle even larger vessels of up to 21 container rows across the deck. The cranes will significantly improve the operational capacity of the Cast Container Terminal.
The new STS cranes will have a safe working load of 65 tons under twin lift spreader with an outreach of 55.38m, a span of 15.24m and a backreach of 18.29m and will be supplied to the Cast Terminal in the 3rd quarter of 2021.
The cranes feature a curve going gantry system to allow the cranes to move and operate on two interconnected angular berths and will join existing Liebherr ship to shore container cranes already at the terminal.
