Two LHM 420 and one LHM 550 cranes are being shipped to Noatum Terminals in the West Mediterranean. The three LHM models are joining an LHM 420 that was deployed earlier in the year and is operating at Noatum Terminal Sagunto.
The three new Liebherr mobile harbour cranes are joining the fleet at Noatum port terminals in Castellon, Sagunto and Tarragona. The cranes will enable the terminals to improve their handling efficiency for various cargo types.
Port terminals operated by Noatum support a variety of commodities around their global supply chain. Agricultural goods, minerals in bulk, steel, project cargo and containers are handled in the logistics network.
With their carrying capacity of 124 and 144 T, respectively, the LHM 420 and LHM 550 can lift and handle a variety of cargo.
Juan Carlos Jiménez, divisional manager - maritime cranes at Liebherr Ibérica, says: “Liebherr is pleased to contribute to our customers’ strategic value to provide continuous improvements. For our Spanish client Noatum, this includes supporting them in their aim to reduce their overall environmental footprint while still meeting the demands of increased global cargo traffic, both in terms of volume and mass. The LHM 420 and LHM 550 meet their specific tonnage and diverse cargo needs at their Castellon, Sagunto and Tarragona terminals. With the LHM 420 model alone, they anticipate an improvement in productivity of up to 38 containers per hour.”
