Port of Immingham receives three Liebherr cranes
The Port of Immingham located on the east coast of England, on the Humber Estuary in Lincolnshire, has received three new LHM 420 cranes.
This port is a member of the British port group Associated British Ports and is the United Kingdom’s largest port by tonnage. The three LHM 420 cranes will be used for handling bulk cargo and scrap in the port. They each have a lifting capacity of up to 124 metric tonnes, and are powered by electric motors and a diesel engine running on Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO).
The Liebherr LHM 420 cranes were loaded at the Liebherr production plant in Rostock, Germany. They were transported across the Baltic and North Seas, a journey that took two days and five hours. They were transported fully assembled aboard the multipurpose freighter Meri. Built in 2010, the Meri sails under the Finnish flag. It also measures 105.4 metres in length and 18.8 metres in width and has a gross tonnage of 3,360 tonnes.
