A recent order from the Port of Lyttleton is the latest in a series of contracts that has seen Liebherr Container Cranes expand on an already significant presence in New Zealand’s North and South Islands, the company said.

The Port of Lyttleton’s most recent order for a super post panamax ship to shore crane and four straddle carriers, will see the number of Liebherr straddle carriers in the Port of Lyttelton grow to eight and brings the total number of ship to shore cranes at the port to three. Trade at the port has seen significant growth in recent years with latest reports indicating this trend is set to continue.

Meanwhile, the Port of Tauranga on New Zealand’s North Island has recently taken possession of a new Liebherr super post panamax ship to shore crane and three new Liebherr straddle carriers. The cranes took centre stage in a ceremony to celebrate the opening of a 170 m new wharf extension in Tauranga’s Sulphur Point Wharf.

Speaking at the Ceremony, New Zealand‘s Prime Minister, John Key, said that the efficiencies that the current investments in new cranes, straddle carriers and a dredging program will deliver, make Tauranga a port of the future.

The Port of Tauranga will continue to expand with the arrival of a seventh Liebherr ship to shore crane early in 2014. This crane will bring to nine the number of Liebherr STS cranes on the North Island, includiing the two cranes located at Centerport, Wellington.

The cranes join a fleet of 20 Liebherr mobile harbor cranes in operation across New Zealand and Australia, giving Liebherr an extensive presence right across the region.
