Euroports Germany boosts bulk handling capacity with new Liebherr crane
Euroports Germany has purchased an all-electric Liebherr LPS 420 E portal crane as it expands the capacity at the Rostock Overseas Port. Liebherr will supply the unit next year
Euroports Germany is the largest port-handling company in the Rostock overseas port and in the whole of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The company constantly responds to changing market conditions to enable its customers to handle goods efficiently. I
n recent years, Euroports Germany has already invested in two Liebherr cranes for its general cargo terminal in Rostock’s overseas port. The two LHM 550 mobile harbour cranes are the backbone of the handling of wind turbines and allow for increased container handling resulting from the New Silk Road.
The equally increased volume of bulk goods prompted Euroports to put an LHM 280 into operation at short notice. In order, to further increase the handling capacity and to create the necessary replacement for two harbour cranes, in the summer of 2022, Liebherr will deliver an all-electric LPS 420 E to its neighbour in Rostock’s overseas port.
Karsten Lentz, managing director of the Euroports Germany Group, said, “We have opted for a fully electric crane, the LPS 420 E. In future, the crane will be used to handle all types of goods at this terminal. In addition to building materials, this also includes ores, lime, gypsum, wood chips and many more.”
