Terex Port Solutions (TPS) is supplying a diesel-electric Terex® Gottwald Model 2 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 2304 two-rope variant and a Terex® Stackace™ E 6-8 empty container handler to the Belgian river port of Liège. The two cargo-handling machines will start commercial operation in September 2016 at the trimodal terminal of Liège Container Terminal SA (LCT) situated on the River Meuse. They will contribute to increasing handling volume and thus help LCT to extend its market position further in the long term.
The Model 2 crane for LCT has a powerful lifting capacity curve and a maximum lifting capacity of 80 t, an outreach up to 40 m and a maximum hoist speed of 85 m/min. The empty container handler with a load capacity of up to 8 t offers a stacking height of 1-over-6 standard empty containers. The crane and empty container handler will be used on the 300-m-long quay, on which only a rail-mounted gantry crane with 50 t lifting capacity has been working to date.
