Watch: ‘Never Seen Before’ Logistics Feat


Liebherr Maritime Cranes has been involved in what it hails as “a feat of dockside logistics never seen before” after delivering two new mobile harbour cranes that can reach up to 22 rows of containers.

The cranes were delivered to Montecon — a container service provider at the Port of Montevideo.

Montevideo is one of the major ports in South America and a major player in the economy of Uruguay.

Liebherr Maritime Cranes developed the LHM 800 at Montecon’s request because there were no mobile harbour cranes big enough to meet the needs of the largest ships.

Olascoaga, General Manager of Montecon, said: “We take it as a basic strategic aim that the port of Montevideo is the only deep-water port in the whole of Uruguay and of this region, with a future full of possibilities.”

Berthold, Managing Director Sales of Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH, added: “The decisive link between the biggest mobile harbour crane in the world and a successfully running port business is the close and trustful cooperation of two leading family businesses.

“The LHM 800 represents a before and after, a new area for both family-owned companies, Montecon and Liebherr.”

Saqr Port Authority recently ordered new Liebherr mobile harbour cranes for its deep-water berths in the Middle East.
