Mukran Port Terminals in Sassnitz, Germany, has bought its third Liebherr mobile harbour crane, type LHM 550.

This is the sixth Liebherr mobile harbour crane in Sassnitz. This means the port town on the island of Rügen has the highest LHM-density in the German speaking DACH region.

Mukran Port is a crucial link in the New Silk Road. The port acts as an interface for international transport chains for rail, sea, and road. Transportation of goods to and from China takes 12 days.

In terms of infrastructure, Mukran Port is also ideally equipped for logistics, even for heavy loads and has successfully operated two LHM 400 mobile harbour cranes for years. The terminal operator has now increased its crane fleet again to meet the growing demand from its customers.

"With the new mobile harbour crane, we are strengthening our position as a multipurpose port for future business in the project cargo sector. We are also taking into account the rapid development of traffic on the New Silk Road via the Mukran site as a crucial link," said Harm Sievers, MD of the operating company Mukran Port Terminals.

"With our trio of Liebherr cranes, we are ideally equipped to meet the increasing demands of the future. The versatility of the LHM 550 fits perfectly with the daily requirements at our terminal."

The multifunctionality of Liebherr mobile harbour cranes makes them attractive for all areas of application in the port. Thanks to the simple modular design, lifting devices can be replaced within a short time.
