Port puts Leibherr on a pedestal

14 June 2011

The client, American Natchez-Adams County Port in Missouri, specializes in cargo which is palletized, baled, unitized, containerized, dry bulk liquid, and ‘Roll on, roll off’.

The installation of the 280t capacity LR 1280 on the 9m pedestal, combined with new improved materials and components, a simplified control system, optimised drive technology, and litronic control system, has enhanced capacities at the port, Leibherr said.

American Natchez-Adams County Port now handles using greater capacities than have previously been provided to the Natchez-Adams County region, and provides services to a broader customer base, Liebherr said.
