Liebherr LHM 600s for Yilport Quetzal

Two Liebherr mobile harbour cranes, type LHM 600, were recently delivered from Liebherr’s maritime production facility in Rostock in Germany to Yilport’s recently acquired multi-purpose terminal in Quetzal, Guatemala

Yilport has an option for two more LHM 600s in 2019.

 

The machines are equipped with a tower extension of 12m, which ensures a maximum cabin height of more than 37m. The higher position of the operator cabin ensures high visibility into deep cargo holds and enables highly efficient container handling with maximum safety.

With a maximum outreach of 58m, twin lift capability and a lifting capacity of 104 tonnes, the LHM 600 is capable of servicing vessels up to 19 container rows wide and nine container stacks high.

 

The two cranes were shipped fully-erect by the ro-ro vessel ROLLDOCK STORM. This is a proven method of shipping Liebherr cranes built in Rostock. Shipping fully-assembled Liebherr cranes by ro-ro vessel means that the machines can be ready for operation shortly after driving off the vessel onto the quay. Both cranes will be ready for operation by the end of November.
