Four Liebherr ship to shore container cranes for Montreal

Liebherr Container Cranes and Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership have signed a contract for the supply of four ship to shore (STS) container cranes to the Cast Container Terminal in Montreal, Canada. The cranes will handle the largest container vessels currently visiting the port. The new STS cranes will have a safe working load of 65 t under twin lift spreader with an outreach of 55.38 m, a span of 15.24 m and a backreach of 18.29 m and will be supplied to the Cast Terminal in the 3rd quarter of 2021. The cranes feature a curve going gantry system to allow the cranes to move and operate on two interconnected angular berths.

“MGT is very pleased to team up once again with Liebherr for this important investment in energy-efficient cranes that will support our efforts to optimize productivity and improve our service offering to our customers”, said Michael Fratianni, CEO Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership.

Liebherr Container Cranes and MGT have a established relationship for over 20 years, with MGT having previously ordered five ship to shore container cranes and eighteen rubber tyre gantry cranes from Liebherr.
