In February 2012, Bayswater celebrated the handover of the 2nd Liebherr Mobile Harbor Crane, type LHM 180. Bayswater Shipping & Forwarding provides transportation of cargoes between Singapore and Batam Island, Indonesia as well as barging of transhipment project cargo within Asian Ports.
After the delivery of a LHM 100 in 2007, this time the company decided to go for the next bigger model. With a maximum lifting capacity of 64t and a maximum outreach of 35m, this machine is perfectly suited for the handling of large volume, heavy lift and/or oversized transhipment cargo, thus entailing the direct discharging and loading of feeder vessels to barges or from barges to feeder vessels.
“The Liebherr solution will be an integral part of Bayswater’s facility plans that enable safe and efficient handling of containerised and heavy lift cargo. With Liebherr's industry leading eco-efficient products and services, Bayswater will receive the benefit from lowered energy consumption, reduced spare parts needs and improved operating efficiency,” says Kelvin Tan, Director of Bayswater.
The decision in favor of Liebherr’s solution follows a comprehensive evaluation of available mobile harbor crane systems conducted by the client. The initial implementation includes rigorous process and performance analyses.
