Liebherr has sold its first rail-mounted gantry (RMG) in Canada as part of an order for Terminal Montreal Inc, which also included a ship-to-shore (STS) crane.
Termont Montreal, which opened in 2016, has quickly reached capacity and the new Liebherr equipment will help increase its handling capacity to 600,000 teu.
The RMG is able to stack containers 1-over-5 high, with a safe working load of 65 tonnes under a twinlift spreader, a span of 36.6 m, a lift height over rail of 18.5 m and a single cantilever of 17 m.
Termont Montreal already has five Liebherr STS cranes and 11 Liebherr rubber-tyred gantries (RTGs) in operation at its facility.
The new STS crane is a twin lift model that is identical to previously supplied cranes, featuring an outreach of 48 m, a backreach of 15.24 m, a span of 18.29 m and a lift height over rail of 33.5 m.
Ray Cronin, Liebherr Container Cranes’ area sales manager for the Americas, said: “We are delighted with this latest order from Termont, a partner with whom we have a long-standing and successful relationship.
“We are very proud to continue this partnership and to provide equipment that will drive productivity and allow us to continue providing service and support for decades to come.”
