MSC Gate Bremerhaven, a joint venture between EUROGATE and TIL Terminal Investments Limited, a related company of MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, has placed an order for two megamax ship to shore (STS) container cranes. The machines have an outreach of 73m (25 container rows), a back reach of 25m, a span of 30.48m and a lift height over rail of 51.2m. The cranes are due for handover before the end of 2020 and will mark the 22nd and 23rd large ship to shore crane delivered to North Sea ports in Germany since 2017.
Earlier this year, EUROGATE also placed an order with Liebherr for 6 mega max STS cranes for their container terminal in Hamburg. The cranes will be delivered and handed over by the summer of 2020. In 2018, Liebherr delivered six similar ultra large STS cranes to the North Sea Terminal, Bremerhaven and have received an order for an additional four cranes, due for handover next year.
