Port of Immingham orders three Liebherr mobile harbour cranes

Associated British Ports (ABP) Immingham will receive three new Liebherr mobile harbour cranes.

The Liebherr 420s will arrive later this month from Rostock, Germany.

The new investment amounts to £9.7 million ($11.4 million), with an additional £500,000 ($588,360) on new Nemag grabs.

The new cranes use the Liebherr hybrid system which comprises of a diesel generator which runs on HVO and the option to switch to all electric, for optimised performance and larger fuel consumption reduction.

“This is another great investment in the port,” said Simon Bird, Regional Director of the Humber ports.

“It offers our customers a range of equipment, these being specially optimised for vessels in the post-panamax class.

“It’s part of our wider strategy investment in future proofing the Humber ports and giving our customers the confidence that the ports remain resilient, and we are giving them what they need in having reliable and efficient cranage.”

The new cranes will be mainly used for bulk cargo handling and scrap handling.

They have a 124-tonne lifting capability, while offering greater safety improvements in the driver’s cab and allowing for better fleet management.

The Port of Hueneme recently welcomed a new Liebherr electric-hybrid crane as part of a $7 million spending spree by Ports America stevedoring.

The crane’s arrival marked another important step in the port’s transition to zero-emissions technology and focus on operational reliability, as the new crane is set to replace old machinery soon to be decommissioned.
