LIEBHERR Container Cranes and Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership have announced the signing of a contract for the supply of four ship to shore container cranes to the Cast Container Terminal in Montreal, Canada.

The cranes are to be delivered next year and are expected to handle the largest container vessels currently visiting Montreal and are said to be “future proofed” to handle even larger vessels of up to 21 container rows across the deck.

Liebherr managing director – sales, David Griffin, said they were delighted with this latest order.

“It is very rewarding for us to see the existing Liebherr equipment help drive productivity at MGT and we are looking forward to seeing these new cranes, along with the recently delivered ten ERTGs provide many decades of exceptional service to MGT,” he said.
