Euroports Germany has ordered an all-electric Liebherr LPS 420 E crane for Rostock's overseas port. 

In recent years, the company invested in two Liebherr cranes for its general cargo terminal in Rostock, and brought on an LHM 280 at short notice to meet rising volumes of bulk goods.

The new LPS 420 E will be delivered in the summer of 2022.

"We want to further strengthen the handling performance at our bulk terminal. In the coming year, we are not only investing in a new crane to be even more efficient, but we also want to make our contribution to sustainability," says Karsten Lentz, managing director of the Euroports Germany Group. "We have opted for a fully electric crane, the LPS 420 E. In future, the crane will be used to handle all types of goods at this terminal. In addition to building materials, this also includes ores, lime, gypsum, wood chip and many more."

The all-electric gantry crane is designed for ports and terminals with electric infrastructure. All crane movements such as luffing, lifting, slewing and travelling movements are carried out by means of emission-free electric motors and are, therefore, not hydraulic. With an outreach of up to 48 m, ships up to Post-Panamax class can be served.

The LPS 420 E has a maximum lifting capacity of up to 124 T.

The machine is equipped with high-performance power accumulators to reduce the peak load in the crane's main power supply and to use regenerative energy within the system. In addition, the synchronous electric motors have a low moment of inertia and provide fast response for precise driving characteristics.
