RHB boosts crane capacity

Rotterdam-based RHB Stevedoring & Warehousing has acquired a second mobile harbour crane that will be used to handle heavy lift and project cargo.

The LHM 550, which has a lifting capacity of 144 tonnes, will complement RHB’s existing crane, the 208-tonne capacity LHM 600.

When used in tandem, the cranes have a combined lift capacity of 216 tonnes, which RHB said is ideal for handling long cargoes, for example wind turbine towers and blades as well as rails.

RHB added that the mobile cranes can be deployed at every location on its 730 m quay and are two of the largest mobile harbour cranes in operation in Rotterdam.
