NTB receives 4 additional Liebherr ship to shore container cranes
NTB in Bremerhaven has taken delivery of four additional Liebherr ship to shore container cranes. Since the first STS was handed over in 2018, it brings to ten the number of Liebherr STS at the port.
The cranes are identical to the previous ones and are one of the largest STS cranes in the world, with a range of 73 m, a range of 30.48 m and a range of 25 m.
The cranes have a secure working load of 75 tons and can handle the largest container vessels in the world.
The cranes will enable NTB to handle future generations of ultra-large container vessels, designed for working vessels with 25 containers across and up to 10 high on deck. In addition to being among the largest, the cranes are also some of the most sophisticated.
Semi-automatic actions are facilitated by Liebherr Automation Systems, with manual intervention only needed when operating below a predefined safe height.
The port operates landside straddle carriers and the cranes are fitted with a yard monitoring device that monitors the operating area for obstacles, hazards or straddle carriers and only allows the container to be positioned at the target location when it is safe to do so.
The revolutionary straddle carrier lane covers the active lane only and offers protection for those on the field.
