Four new harbour mobiles for Noatum

Spanish port operator Noatum Terminals, which specialises in the management of port concessions and infrastructures, has taken delivery of three new 124 tonne Liebherr LHM420 Pactronic for its operations in Sagunto and Tarragona and a new 144 tonne LHM550 for Castellon.

The new cranes feature equipment that enables them to handle all types of cargo. They incorporate the latest technology and are more environmentally friendly offering low energy consumption.

Two of the LHM420 cranes - which feature a 48 metre boom/jib - will operate at the Sagunto terminal to improve productivity, handling up to 38 containers an hour, while be able to adapt to the handling of bulk goods and general cargo. A third LHM420 crane will operate from Tarragona, a facility specialising in handling agricultural products and bulk cargo.
