Liebherr commissions its 8th crane at Exolgan Terminal, Buenos Aires, Argentina


Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. has recently commissioned its eighth ship to shore container crane at Exolgan Container Terminal in Buenos Aires. The Liebherr crane was officially welcomed to Exolgan in a ceremony at the terminal which saw participation of the president of Argentina, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner along with local dignitaries and representatives from Exolgan.

Speaking at the ceremony the president of Argentina strongly praised the commitment to growth shown by Exolgan Container Terminal and noted that Exolgan currently handles a third of all containers into and out of Argentina.

The newest addition to the Liebherr fleet at Exolgan has an outreach of 51.5m, a backreach of 14m and a span of 31.37m. The crane has a safe working load of 62.5t under twinlift spreader and has a lift height of 40m over the rail. All crane drives are Liebherr AC. The crane will be able to handle vessels with up to 20 rows of containers.

Gerry Bunyan, Liebherr‘s sales and marketing manager said “The commissioning of this crane is the next phase in the long-term partnership between Liebherr and Exolgan Container Terminal. The first Liebherr ship to shore crane was supplied in 1994 and since then Liebherr have worked with Exolgan Container Terminal, providing ship to shore cranes. Exolgan is today, one of South America’s leading ports.”

The acquisition of the Liebherr ship to shore crane is part of continued expansion at Exolgan Container Terminal that has already seen a 360m long berth extension. The expansion plans when completed will allow Exolgan Container Terminal to service two super post panamax vessels simultaneously.

The latest crane supplied by Liebherr will work with the other Liebherr ship to shore cranes at Exolgan Container Terminal, allowing Exolgan to offer a safe, reliable and efficient service, turning vessels around in the shortest possible time.

Mr. Bunyan continued “The faith Exolgan place in our cranes is a reflection of a Liebherr ship to shore crane’s ability to deliver unrivalled availability, exceptional productivity and very attractive entire lifetime costs.”
