efficiency and safety of port operations
A new mobile harbour crane, and a reach stacker have been added
Limassol, Cyprus 22 January 2019: DP World Limassol has acquired a range of new equipment as part of an ongoing upgrade of the Limassol port infrastructure. A new, high-tech mobile harbour crane, and a reach stacker have been recently added, to speed up operations and upgrade of the infrastructure at the Multipurpose port terminal.
The new equipment will be used for the loading and unloading of general cargo, break bulk and oil and gas equipment, enhancing the efficiency, productivity and safety of port operations and reducing vessel turnaround time. In addition to making loading and unloading faster and easier, the operator compartment of these new machines has been ergonomically designed to provide good sight lines, better working comfort and environmentally friendly with low emissions and noise levels.
The recent acquisitions underline DP World Limassol’s commitment to continually investing in the port delivering innovative and sustainable services, while at the same time continue to improve customer satisfaction.
The General Manager of DP World Limassol, Charles Meaby, commented “The addition of the new equipment is an integral part of our commitment to provide high quality trade enabling services in Cyprus.”
He continued “The LHM 420 mobile harbour crane from Liebherr is a great investment for the Port. With its heavy lifting capability, innovative services the new crane will help maximise the Multipurpose port’s potential. DP World is a global leader in the management and operations of ports and we will continue making improvements to deliver a better service for port users.”
“The new cranes will enable DP World Limassol to work more universally and with a higher turnover at all berths of the terminal. The SOLAS compliant weighing system installed in both units will benefit both the operation and maintenance of the units. We will put all efforts into fulfilling the expectation DP World has towards Liebherr and are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with DP World in the future”, quotes Igor Nedelchenko, Area Sales Manager for Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes.
