Two Liebherr mobile harbour cranes for Yilport

Terminal operator Yilport Holding, a subsidiary of Yildrim Group, has recently obtained two Liebherr LHM 600 mobile harbour cranes for its recently acquired terminal Puerto Quetzal, located 102 km from Guatemala City.

The machines are equipped with a tower extension of 12 m, which ensures a maximum cabin height of more than 37 m. As stated by the manufacturer, the higher position of the operator cabin ensures high visibility into deep cargo holds and enables highly efficient container handling with maximum safety.

With a maximum outreach of 58 m, twin lift capability and a lifting capacity of 104 t, the LHM 600 is capable of servicing vessels up to 19 container rows wide and nine container stacks high.

Both cranes were shipped fully erected, that allows them to be ready for operation shortly after driving off the vessel onto the quay, from Germany to Guatemala by the Ro-Ro vessel “Rolldock Storm”

According to Liebherr, Yilport Holding has an option for two more machines in 2019.
