The crane is planned to enable the port to perform tandem lifting with an additional Liebherr mobile harbor crane together lifting as much as 448 tonnes, the press release stated.

“I am pleased that we are expanding our crane capacity considerably with the new crane. We need to be able to handle more and more large cargo in the future, and therefore we need to rearm. I am also pleased with the fact that only few ports in the world have a similar crane because it shows that Port Esbjerg is a heavyweight internationally,” Dennis Jul Pedersen, CEO of Esbjerg Havn commented.
