Four LBS 800 cranes manufactured by Liebherr have been delivered to Porto Chibatão, expanding the fleet of barge-slewing cranes in operation at the port to 16. Porto Chibatão serves the Manaus industrial park, also known as the Manaus free trade zone, and is essential for processing increasing cargo volumes in the region.

The port spans one million square metres. Its static load capacity stands at a staggering 40,000 TEUs, demonstrating its ability to handle substantial cargo volumes. The four LBS 800 are equipped for container handling and have a turnover of up to 35 containers per hour and can lift up to 104 tonnes. To accommodate improved visibility during operations, the cranes were also built with a tower extension.

Major link in the global supply chain

Shipping and port logistics continue to play a key role in the global supply chain. Porto Chibatão’s berthing facility consists of a 1,026-metre-long floating pier or quay for embarking and disembarking ships coming from long-haul navigation and cabotage.

It can simultaneously operate eight vessels with drafts of up to 20 metres. Among the important shipping companies that use the harbour are Hamburg Süd, Maersk Mercosul Line, Log-In, CMA-CGM, MSC, and general cargo ships and steel products destined for the Manaus Industrial Pole. Products include materials from the textile industry, electronics, and two-wheelers, among many other goods.

“As a leading port operator in Brazil, we are always looking for innovative solutions to improve our performance and sustainability,” notes Jhony Fidelis, General Executive Director of Grupo Chibatão. “These particular LBS 800 cranes from Liebherr are a perfect fit for our vision, as they offer high productivity and low emissions. We are proud to work with Liebherr, a company that shares our commitment to excellence and fostering environmental responsibility.”

Larger cranes for rising demands

In recent years, Porto Chibatão received the go-ahead from Antaq, Brazil’s ports and waterways regulatory agency, to move forward with its 98 million reais, about €18.3 million, expansion plan to lengthen the floating pier from 710 metres to 1,026 metres. The expansion is needed to process increasing cargo volumes in the Manaus industrial park.

The trend for transporting commodities is ultimately towards larger and more goods, overall.
