Another 72m outreach Liebherr crane at DCT Gdansk

The new crane, which is identical to two previous cranes supplied earlier this year, has an outreach of 72m, a back reach of 15m and a lift height over rail of 50m. The cranes are capable of handling vessels with 25 rows of containers across deck and, along with five previously installed Liebherr STS cranes, provide eight ultra-large container cranes capable of handling the latest and future generations of ULCS.


As previously reported, MSC GÜLSÜN is 400m long and 61.55m wide and is the first of 11 vessels ordered by MSC that stack 24 containers across deck.


DCT Gdansk is Europe’s fastest growing container port with an impressive 22.2 % growth in 2018. Since its inception in 2007, DCT Gdansk has chosen Liebherr STS cranes to power its quayside operation. The latest crane is the 14th Liebherr STS crane supplied to DCT Gdansk since its foundation.

DCT Gdansk has relied on Liebherr STS cranes since it opened in 2007 and now has 14

According to Cameron Thorpe, CEO of DCT Gdansk, purchasing the right equipment and future proofing is a key component of the success of DCT Gdansk. “At DCT Gdansk, we continually invest for the future, so when the future arrives, as it has with this new class of vessel, we’re ready for it.”


David Griffin, Managing Director, Sales at Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd, added: “Liebherr is very proud of the very strong relationship and reference that we have with DCT Gdansk and we look forward to being involved as DCT continues its growth in the future.”
