Additional cranes deployed to deal with port growth

Liebherr recently handed over two of its LHM 550 mobile harbour
cranes to the Maputo Port Development Company (MPDC).

Maputo is one of the most important transhipment points for goods
of all kinds on the east coast of Africa. The MPDC already invested in
two Liebherr LHM 550’s in 2015 and due to their high productivity
recently decided to add two more cranes to their fleet.

The growth of the Port of Maputo and its activities in recent years and
the increasing demand from its customers have been the key drivers
in the choice of the mobile harbour crane and the LHM 550 is the
perfect crane when it comes to high professional bulk handling. Its
high capacity and fast movements offer outstanding productivity of
high-density bulk material like ferrochrome, which is one of the main
products being handled at Maputo Ports.

The investment in equipment also includes the training of several
operators and technicians for the handling and maintenance of the
new machines.
