Terminal operator DP World has ordered eight Liebherr rubber tyred gantry cranes for its terminal in Berbera, Somaliland.
Scheduled for delivery by the end of this year, the cranes can handle six containers plus a truck lane wide and can stack one container over five high. Features include gantry camera and laser anti-collision systems as well as the company’s DGPS autosteering and stack profiling technology. They will also be equipped with the manufacturer’s remote diagnostics and maintenance software, DiaMon3D.
Joining three Liebherr LHM 420 mobile harbour cranes delivered last year, the new cranes have been ordered in preparation for plans to expand the port with a new 400 metre quay and the extension of its storage yard.
