Salerno Container Terminal's new Liebherr RTG

Liebherr Container Cranes has delivered four electric rubber-tyre gantry cranes (ERTG) to customers in Italy. One ERTG has been delivered to Salerno Container Terminal (SCT), controlled by Gallozzi Group, while three have been delivered to Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers, Naples (Conateco), an MSC company.

The cranes will make a valuable contribution to the economies of Southern Italy and beyond. 

The ERTG delivered to SCT will work container stacks 10 wide and six high. It is among the largest RTGs delivered by Liebherr. Like the three ERTGS delivered to Naples, the machines have a hybrid powertrain, operating on both diesel and electricity via cable reeling drum. This offers emission-free container handling when connected to the grid and delivers substantial energy savings through onboard power regeneration. 

The ERTG for SCT is the latest Liebherr machine to be delivered to the terminal and joins four Liebherr Harbour Mobile cranes in container handling configuration and six Liebherr reachstackers already at the port. 

Conateco, meanwhile, is beginning its journey with Liebherr. The new Liebherr RTGs are set to streamline operations, improve cargo handling capacity, and contribute to the economic growth of the local hinterland. As the ports evolve with cutting-edge technology, they remain vital components of Italy's trade infrastructure. 

The equipment was ordered through longstanding agent Macport, which supports Liebherr maritime cranes in Italy, Bulgaria and Albania.
