Canadian port operator Montreal Gateway Terminal Partnerships (MGT) has ordered four Liebherr ship to shore container cranes.
The new 65 tonne ship to shore container cranes offer an outreach of 55.3 metres, a span of 15.2 metres and a back reach of 18.3 metres. Scheduled for delivery in September, the cranes have been purchased to handle the increased container traffic the port has encountered over the past couple of years, while the new cranes can also handle the larger container vessels calling at the terminal.
Michael Fratianni, chief executive of Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership, said: “MGT is very pleased to team up once again with Liebherr for this important investment in energy-efficient cranes that will support our efforts to optimise productivity and improve our service offering to our customers.”
David Griffin, sales managing director of Liebherr Container Cranes, added: “We are delighted with this latest order from Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership. It is very rewarding for us to see the existing Liebherr equipment help drive productivity at MGT and we are looking forward to seeing these new cranes, along with the recently delivered ten electric rubber tyre gantry cranes, provide many decades of exceptional service to MGT.”
