Liebherr USA Co. has delivered a new Ship-To-Shore (STS) crane to PSA Penn Terminals, offering local support and proximity to customers.
Liebherr has a strong track record for the supply of STS cranes to the US, with over 20 cranes in recent years.
Winston Ziegler, Liebherr’s Head of Sales, Maritime Cranes at Liebherr USA Co., said: “Our team in the US provides support through our local Liebherr USA service programme”.
Ziegler added that Liebherr is confident that this new crane will help PSA Penn Terminals to continuously meet the needs of its customers with security, efficiency, and reliability.
“Liebherr has been designing and manufacturing container cranes from our base in Ireland for over 50 years,” Ziegler explained.
He continued by saying that his department leverages the strength of its Liebherr companies to manufacture the drive control systems, electronics, and other mechanical components.
Declan O’Sullivan, General Manager Sales with Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd, spoke about the security of operations: “We understand that security is a top concern for PSA Penn Terminals, and we take this responsibility very seriously.”
“Our engineers work tirelessly to ensure that our cranes are productive, safe, reliable, and secure. We are confident that this new crane will meet the high standards required,” O’Sullivan added.
John Brennan, President and CEO of PSA Penn Terminals, explained that Liebherr has built a solid reputation as a reliable supplier of container cranes as the previously procured STS cranes convey high performance and dependability.
Brennan added: “We are pleased to collaborate once more with Liebherr Container Cranes and to have procured another one of its STS cranes for our terminal. This repeat order stands as proof of its product’s quality and the robustness of our partnership.”
The new crane is reportedly scheduled to be delivered in 2024.
Last month, the Global Ports Group commissioned two mobile harbour cranes Liebherr LHM550 at the group’s Far Eastern terminal Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC) located in the deep-water Port of Vostochniy in Primorskiy krai, Russia.
