Manufactured in Ireland and assembled in Liebherr’s Rostock plant, the cranes are set to enter operation at the purpose built container terminal on the Baltic sea in the coming weeks.

The terminal will be developed in stages, with stage 1 delivering an annual capacity of 1.45 million TEU on the key trade route between Russia and Europe while stages 2 and 3 of the development will see the capacity of the development reach 1.9 million and 3 million TEU respectively.

Liebherr Container Cranes, Pat O Leary explained: "Liebherr is proud to have been selected as a partner to help deliver this important project.

"This wealth of experience has given us an expertise and knowledge which is second to none."
