Hamburger Hafen und Logistik (HHLA) will add three Liebherr automated dual-trolley ship to shore container cranes to its terminal in the Port of Hamburg.

The cabinless cranes will operate at Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA), the world's first certified climate-neutral container handling facility, entirely through automation and remote control.

CTA managing director Patrick Krawutschke says: “The state-of-the-art cranes will empower CTA to meet the demands of the future while optimising operations and enhance our overall performance, ultimately benefiting our customers.”

The cranes have a safe working load of 75 T twin lift at an outreach of 61 m, lift height of 53 m, back reach of 24.5 m and a span of 35 m.

HHLA purchased two Liebherr ship to shore cranes in 2015 and three in 2017 for its Tollerort container terminal.

Liebherr's automation technology enables autonomous operation for most of the cycle and facilitates remote control via the Liebherr Remote Operator Station (ROS) for pick and place on the vessel.

Liebherr's dual-trolley ship-to-shore container cranes are designed to minimise energy consumption and optimise operational efficiency.

Energy regeneration and capture is a key feature of the cranes and is carried out at both the primary and portal trolley hoist drives, enhancing the power consumption of the crane.

The use of advanced automation algorithms further reduces energy consumption per container moved, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly operation.
