Liebherr Maritime Crane recently delivered the biggest mobile harbour crane of the Caribbean to Kingston Wharves Limited in Jamaica. The LHM 600 is equipped with an elongated tower extension and eases the handling of big container vessels up to Super-Post-Panamax size.
With a maximum outreach of 58 metres, twin lift capability and a lifting capacity of 104 tonnes, the LHM 600 is capable of servicing vessels up to 19 container rows wide and 9 container stacks high.
“This new machine is the next essential future investment in our terminal in order to handle the new generation of vessels that are heading for us in the course of the Panama Canal expansion. Our crane operators will be delighted by the impressive eye-level of more than 37 metres that comes along with the special tower extension. The LHM 600 will maximize our efficiencies, increase our responsiveness and ultimately meet our customer’s demands,” says Grantley Stephenson, the company’s CEO.
