Dry Bulk,


The Port of Rosyth, Scotland’s best connected port, has welcomed their new Liebherr multimillion pound mobile harbour crane (model LHM 550) as part of a major investment programme at the port for bulk handling primarily for Cefetra.

Liebherr is one of the world’s leading port crane manufacturers and this new crane is a state-of-the-art mobile harbour crane with a powerful transmission and advanced electronics for bulk handing.

 

The 439 t crane arrived on board the MV Meri over the festive period and was rolled off the specialist vessel directly onto the quayside during slack tide. The crane operators at the port have been fully trained and the crane is now in operation.

 

Derek Knox, Senior Port Manager, Rosyth, said: “This is a great start to the new year for the Port of Rosyth. The new Liebherr crane is supporting our growth plans for the port and will be used primarily for bulk handling for Cefetra who have chosen Rosyth as their Scottish argihub. We have many Liebherr machines across the business due to their excellent reputation in crane technology and proven track record of providing reliable equipment to meet the demands of our cargo operations.”
