September 24 - Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order from Hans Lehmann for a second diesel-electric G HMK 5506 variant of the Terex Gottwald Model 5 mobile harbour crane.
The crane will join an identical Model 5 crane that Lehmann has been using since the end of 2013 in Lübeck Cargo Terminal.
The second crane will extend the capacities and availability of ship loading and unloading equipment in the terminal, where three Terex reach stackers have also been working since the end of last year.
"Both the first Terex Gottwald Model 5 mobile harbour crane and the three Terex reach stackers have more than fulfilled our expectations in their first few months," said Lehmann managing director, Holger Lehmann. "All the machines contribute to improving our performance in container handling and in handling heavy and bulky project cargo."
The Model 5 crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tonnes, a wide radius of 51 m and maximum lifting speeds of 120 m per minute. The second crane will primarily work for Lehmann in the handling of container vessels, but will also be used on project cargo vessels.
