Boarding the Heavy Load Carrier MERI, three Liebherr mobile harbour cranes were shipped to Noatum Terminals in the West Mediterranean. Two LHM 420 and one LHM 550 are joining a LHM 420 already deployed earlier this year. The new Liebherr mobile harbour cranes are extending the fleet in Castellon, Sagunto and Tarragona enabling 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, and more are all part of their logistic network. With their carrying capacity of 124 and 144 tonnes, respectively, the LHM 420 and LHM 550 can lift and handle a variety of cargo.
Juan Carlos Jiménez, Divisional Manager Maritime Cranes in Liebherr Ibérica, remarks: “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.”
