Liebherr Container Cranes Lt has handed over four electric rubber tyre gantry cranes (ERTG) to customers in Italy. One ERTG has been delivered to Salerno Container Terminal (SCT) while three have been delivered to Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers, Naples. The ERTG delivered to SCT will work container stacks ten wide and 6 high. It is among the largest RTGs delivered by Liebherr.

Like the three RTGs delivered to Naples, the machines have a hybrid powertrain, operating on both diesel and electricity via cable reeling drum. This offers emission-free container handling when connected to the grid and delivering substantial energy saving through onboard power generation.

The ERTG for SCT is the latest to be delivered to the terminal and joins four Liebherr Harbour Mobile cranes in container handling configuration and six Liebherr reachstackers already at the port. They are set to streamline operations and improve cargo handling capacity.
