Port Gdański Eksploatacja received new cranes
Date of publication: 11.03.2024

The reloading capacity of the Port Gdański Eksploatacja company has increased. Two new cranes, which will increase PGE's reloading rate, have just been unloaded in Gdańsk.

The 151-meter Rolldock Storm ship entered the Port of Gdańsk on Monday afternoon. It transported two Liebherr LHM 280 mobile cranes to Poland, which the Port of Gdańsk Eksploatacja ordered last year. Their unloading using ship's cranes started on Tuesday and lasted until Wednesday.

The new Port of Gdańsk Eksploatacja cranes have a maximum lifting capacity of 84 tons and a reach of 40 meters. Working in tandem, they will be able to reload even loads weighing up to 100 tons.

The machines were unloaded at the Szczecińskie Quay and will work there as well. The new equipment will allow the company to expand the scope of its operations and undertake more handling of heavy items, project cargo, steel structures, machines and vehicles. LHM 200 cranes will also increase the reloading rate of bulk goods. The company additionally emphasizes that the machines are powered by diesel engines that meet EU stage V/EPA Tier 5 final standards. Previously, the company stated that the cranes ordered were adapted to transshipment, among others: bulk cargo (such as grain or coal), but also for reloading coiled sheets (C-hooks), they also have one universal container spreader.

The delivery of new cranes for the Port of Gdańsk Eksploatacja is another investment in transhipment equipment completed in recent months. Last year, the company received three Liebherr LHM 550 mobile cranes, which are used at the Dworzec Drzewny quay.
