Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. is delighted to announce the recent sale of a Ship-To-Shore (STS) container crane to PSA Penn Terminals in Philadelphia, USA. This acquisition marks a continuation of their partnership, as it follows a previous order for two STS cranes in 2018. Boasting an impressive outreach of 48 meters, a span of 18.288 meters, a backreach of 15 meters, and a safe working load (SWL) of 66 tonnes, this high-performance crane is perfectly suited to meet the demands of modern container terminals. With a lift height over rail of 35 meters, it guarantees efficient and reliable operations.

Liebherr USA Co., the mixed sales and service company for Liebherr Maritime Cranes, is responsible for the sale of this STS crane. Demonstrating its commitment to the important US market, Liebherr has supplied over 20 STS cranes in recent years. As a renowned European manufacturer, Liebherr prides itself on delivering high-quality cranes equipped with multiple security layers and data backup systems to meet its customers’ needs.

Ziegler stated, “We are proud to be a trusted supplier to PSA Penn Terminals. Our team in the US provides support through our local Liebherr USA service program, and we are confident that this new crane, when delivered next year, will help PSA Penn Terminals continue to meet the needs of its customers with security, efficiency, and reliability.” Liebherr has been designing and manufacturing container cranes for over fifty years from their base in Ireland. Leveraging the strength of their sister Liebherr companies, they manufacture drive control systems, electronics, and many mechanical components.

In terms of security, Declan O’Sullivan, General Manager Sales at Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd., assured that the company takes this responsibility seriously. O’Sullivan stated, “Our engineers work tirelessly to ensure that our cranes are productive, safe, reliable, and secure, and we are confident that this new crane will meet the high standards required.” PSA Penn Terminals, known for its exceptional facilities as a privately owned multipurpose marine terminal on the US East Coast, recognizes Liebherr as a reliable supplier based on their past experience with STS cranes. John Brennan, President, and CEO of PSA Penn Terminals, expressed his confidence in Liebherr, saying, “We are pleased to collaborate once more with Liebherr Container Cranes and to have procured another one of their STS cranes for our terminal.
