Sydney (Australia), January 2018 – The Australian port solution provider Qube
Ports recently opted for a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane type LHM 420. The
new machine is the eighth mobile harbour crane Qube Ports have purchased from
the German crane manufacturer Liebherr.
Qube Ports is the major integrated port solutions provider in Australia, with services
and facilities in 28 Australian ports, together with cargo storage, materials handling and
distribution operations in all Australia states. For the port in Bell Bay, Tasmania Qube
recently ordered a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane type LHM 420.
The new crane will come in container handling version and is equipped with a twin-lift
spreader. For the handling of project cargo, the LHM 420 provides a maximum lifting
capacity of 124 tonnes at an outreach of up to 16 metres. The maximum reach of the
crane is 48 metres.
This is the eighth mobile harbour crane Qube Ports have purchased from Liebherr, with
units already based in Darwin, Bunbury, Port Hedland, Geraldton and Fremantle. They
also recently ordered twelve wheel loaders from Liebherr.
“Our partnership with Qube goes from strength to strength”, comments Leopold
Berthold, Managing Director Sales in Rostock, Germany. “We hope to also support
them with the new LRS 545 Reachstacker or with the upcoming Liebherr Log Handler”.
“It’s not just the sales, but also the customer service back-up,” said Gordon Clark,
General Manager in Sydney. “Our new office here is also growing, with a holding of
critical spares and trained engineers on both sides of the country”.
The new crane should arrive in Bell Bay in June where it will be assembled and
commissioned by both local and European engineers.
