Liebherr Container Cranes has handed over four Electric Rubber Tyre Gantry cranes (ERTG) to customers in Italy.

One ERTG has been delivered to Salerno Container Terminal (SCT), controlled by Gallozzi Group, and three have been delivered to Consorzio Napoletano Terminal Containers, Naples (Conateco), an MSC company. 

The ERTG delivered to SCT will work container stacks 10 wide and 6 high. It is amongst the largest RTGs delivered by Liebherr. Like the three ERTGS delivered to Naples, the machines have a hybrid powertrain, operating on both diesel and electricity via cable reeling drum. This offers emission free container handling when connected to the grid and delivering substantial energy savings through onboard power regeneration. 

Sustainability is at the cornerstone of both projects. Salerno Container Terminal, Conateco and Liebherr Container Cranes all have sustainability and CSR policies in place. 

All three companies are supporters of the United Nations Global Compact on Human Rights, sharing a common dedication to acting responsibly and collaborating with others in seeking solutions to address the global challenges of today and those that will shape the future of global businesses. Together, they are committed to fostering resilient and sustainable supply chains and accelerating the transition to a net-zero future. 

Macport plays a key role in the sales and service of Liebherr maritime cranes in Italy, Bulgaria, and Albania. 

The ERTG for SCT is the latest Liebherr machine to be delivered to the terminal and joins four Liebherr Harbour Mobile cranes in container handling configuration and six Liebherr reachstackers already at the port. 

Conateco is beginning its journey with Liebherr and the RTGs will streamline operations, improve cargo handling capacity, and contribute to the economic growth locally.
