Two LPS 600 For Efficient Bulk Handling In Gdansk

LPS 600 Port Polnocny

The recent installation of two LPS 600s in Poland underlines the strong demand for Liebherr’s tailor-made portal solution. Booth machines are equipped with the unique Pactronic hybrid power booster and strengthen Liebherr’s market-leading position.


Two LPS 600s for dedicated bulk handling have recently been delivered and installed in the center of the southern Baltic coast. Both cranes will soon start operation in the port of Gdansk, Poland. The port handles various commodities and bulk material handling is of high importance as it accounts for more than 25% of the total cargo handling.


The operator of both LPS 600, Port Polnocny Co. Ltd PPS, opted for the recommended bulk handling configuration, which includes four-rope configuration with two 72 tons winches and a boom length of 50 metres. Additionally, the installation of electric drives and Pactronic® allows for a very efficient and eco-friendly operation.


Awarded with the IBJ Crane of the Year Award in 2011, the LPS 600 is the strongest model of the product line. Based on the innovative Liebherr Mobile Harbour Crane concept, the portal construction is flexible in terms of rail span, number of wheels, power supply and portal height, ensuring that individual customer needs can be met. Thanks to most up-to-date design, the LPS support system remains unrivalled in terms of stability and operational safety.    


Moreover, both cranes are equipped with the unique Pactronic® hybrid drive system. Taking a major step towards low-emission but high-performance machines, Liebherr introduced Pactronic® in 2010. Awarded with the State Prize Clean Technology Austria, this cutting-edge hydraulic hybrid drive for cranes allows for a plus of 30% regarding turnover capacity. At the same time, Pactronic® leads to a reduction of fuel/energy consumption (litre/ton) as well as CO2 and exhaust emissions in the range of 30% depending on the operation. The hybrid drive system is virtually maintenance free as it just needs visible inspection every 10 years. 100% recyclability as well as less noise exposure are additional eco-friendly benefits of the system.


In total, Liebherr has delivered 11 mobile harbour cranes for highly efficient cargo handling to Polish ports, underlining its position as the clear market leader. Further LHM deliveries are expected in the near future. Additionally, 5 ship-to-shore cranes, 14 rubber tyre gantry cranes and 3 reachstackers prove the popularity of Liebherr Maritime Cranes in Poland.
