As part of the modernisation of its facilities, which aims to increase the port’s cargo handling capacity, Vladivostok will take delivery of four Vityaz port cranes and a Liebherr LPS 420.

The Vityaz cranes will be installed at berths 6 and 13 at the Universal Terminal. Each crane has a lifting capacity of 63 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 40 m.
