    05.09.2019 - Bremerhaven. MSC GATE BREMERHAVEN ORDERS NEW CONTAINER GANTRIES.


    SET UP FOR THE FUTURE: MSC GATE BREMERHAVEN ORDERS NEW CONTAINER GANTRIES

     

    MSC Gate Bremerhaven GmbH & Co. KG has ordered two new container gantry cranes. With this, the terminal operator is investing in the future viability of the Bremerhaven location. The new gantries are expected to be put into operation at the end of 2020.

     

    Friedrich Stuhrmann, Managing Director of MSC Gate Bremerhaven, is pleased about the procurement decision: “Given the ever-increasing size of container ships, the current order was on the one hand necessary in order to remain competitive in the future. The new gantries will be larger and more efficient than those they will replace next year. On the other hand, an order for new gantry cranes is always an important signal that we are prepared to invest in the expansion and further development of our handling equipment for the benefit of our customers and the Bremerhaven location.”

     

    The container gantries ordered from Liebherr will have an overall height of 135 metres, a lifting height of 51.2 metres below the spreader and a reach of 73 metres. The gantries will thus be able to handle container ships with 25 rows of containers on deck without restrictions. The gantries will be delivered in individual parts in the course of 2020 for assembly on site in Bremerhaven. When they are put into operation at the end of 2020, they will replace two older container gantries currently in operation at MSC Gate Bremerhaven.

     

    The size and dimensions of the new container gantries are geared to all container ship classes currently in operation, including the new MSC Megamax-24 class, currently the largest in the world. Even if ships become still longer and wider in future, the new gantry cranes will be able to operate without restriction.
