Liebherr closes another Canada deal

Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has announced an order for one ship to shore (STS) container crane and one rail mounted gantry (RMG) crane for Termont Montreal Inc.

This order follows another Canada agreement of Liebherr back in January with Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership. The new STS and RMG cranes will operate at Termont’s Viau Terminal, which opened in 2016.

“The new Liebherr equipment will help the terminal increase its capacity to 600,000TEU and help maximise container handling potential on the Island of Montreal,” stated Liebherr.

The new cranes will join five Liebherr STS cranes and eleven Liebherr RTGs already in operation at Termont Montreal. The new STS crane is a twin lift model identical to previously supplied cranes and features an outreach of 48m, a backreach of 15.24, a span of 18.29m and a lift height over rail of 33.5m.

The RMG is Liebherr’s first RMG sale in Canada and has a safe working load of 65tonnes under a twinlift spreader. With a span of 36.6m, a lift height over rail of 18.5m and a single cantilever of 17m, the machine will stack containers one over five high.

During quieter periods, the crane will carry out fully automatic stack housekeeping. However, in the event of an exception, the RMG can be controlled via a remote operator. To help comply with the strict environmental conditions at the port, the RMG features a super quiet machinery trolley with extensive sound dampening features.
