Four ERTGs for Italy

Liebherr has delivered four new electric rubber tyre gantry cranes (ERTGs) to ports in Salerno and Naples, Italy.

One ERTG was delivered to Salerno Container Terminal, owned by the Gallozzi Group, and the other three to Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers in Naples, a management control system (MSC) company.

The 40 tonne electric E-RTG variant cranes have an under spreader lift height of 18 metres and are able to stack containers one over five. They have a span of 23.47 metres allowing them to cover six rows of containers as well as a truck lane.

Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers was founded in 1995 and is one of the largest port operators in Naples and the fourth largest in Italy. The terminal itself is 157,000 square metres and is strategically placed in the Mediterranean linking the north and south of Europe.
