Terminal Pacífico Sur Valparaíso in Chile recently purchased three Ship-to-Shore container cranes (STS) from Irish based Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. These cranes have an outreach of 62 m and a safe working load of 65 t under twin lift spreader. These are the largest container cranes that Liebherr has ever manufactured for the west coast of South America. The cranes allow the terminal to meet shipping companies’ newest requirements, operating on large container vessels such as the CMA CGM Marco Polo container ships. These ships have a length of 396 meters, a breadth of 53.6m and a TEU capacity of over 16,020 TEU.

Liebherr said the cranes incorporate the latest security and control technologies, and feature comfortable and ergonomic operator cabins. An integrated remote monitoring system allows for efficient crane operation and for monitoring and management of the cranes from within the terminal.

Recent changes in the shipping industry have seen large Post-Panamax vessels calling to South America’s west coast, and central Chile has seen a 15% increase in container movement over the last three years. The acquisition of the Liebherr cranes by TPS allows the port to play a role in meeting this continued demand.
