Liebherr Container Cranes finished its initial ship to coast lift elevation rise with their brand-new copyrighted jacking system as component ofLiebherr Transform The procedure was performed under the guidance of Liebherr designers at Patrick Terminals– Brisbane Autostrad.
Patrick Terminals– Brisbane Autostrad situated on the eastern coastline of Australia is just one of the globe’s most innovative container terminals. Liebherr have 2 ship to coast container cranes at the incurable, a brand-new STS presently being appointed as well as an STS provided in 2015. The 2015 crane has actually a provided lift elevation of 37.5 m, yet with bigger vessels calling at the port, a lift elevation expansion was needed.
Liebherr have actually been performing lift elevation expansions for several years, yet in 2022 a brand-new copyrighted jacking system for lift elevation expansions, was released at the Brisbane incurable for its initial usage. Designed as well as integrated in Liebherr Container Cranes in Ireland, among the vital functions of the system is that it makes use of the crane’s end carriage as a strong base for jacking the crane framework, removing the demand for extra tools.
Furthermore, because the system makes use of the crane framework as a basis for jacking, the loadings are reduced as well as are finished the existing crane.
Preparation takes a number of weeks as well as the system permits the crane to be jacked ready or returned from the rails for jacking if needed.
The real crane raising as well as the insertion of the expansions can be finished in a variety of hrs therefore is matched to terminals susceptible to high winds. The procedure is remarkably fast as well as the entire procedure can be finished from as low as 4 weeks per crane. Following conclusion of the task, the jacks are containerised as well as delivered onwards for their following implementation.
Major task in Port of NY/NJ
GCT New York LP runs 4 Liebherr ship to coast container cranes. Supplied in 2004, the cranes have a lift elevation of 36.57 m as well as an outreach of 50 m. Working in collaboration with Liebherr United States, GCT will certainly embark on a considerable Liebherr Transform task to expand the lift elevation of the cranes by 8.6 m as well as the outreach of the cranes by 5 m (2 bays). When full, the cranes will certainly have the capacity to function the biggest vessels presently calling the port of NY/NJ enabling GCT to far better solution their consumers.
