Container terminal operator, APM Terminals Gothenburg, has placed an order for two ship to shore (STS) cranes and two rail mounted gantry cranes with Liebherr Container Cranes, the company announced recently. The order comes as ECT Delta Terminal in Rotterdam orders seven Liebherr SC340S straddle carriers.

The 65t Megamax STS cranes have an outreach of 65m, a back reach of 25m and a rail span of 30.4m. Features include anti-collision and straddle carrier positioning systems, vessel stack profiling and smart slowdown.
