March 18 - SAL has undertaken a shipment of four LHM 500 mobile harbour cranes, two

The cranes were shipped on SAL's Frauke from Liebherr's own factory pier in Rostock to Shuwaik, Kuwait and are part of a larger, nine crane order for Liebherr from Kuwait based Al Ghanim & Al Majid Logistics Group.

Liebherr cranes were selected after a comprehensive evaluation of available mobile harbour crane systems as they were considered the most able to withstand the tremendous demands made by the severe hot weather conditions found in Kuwait.

The new cranes each have a lifting capacity of 104 tonnes and a maximum outreach of 51m and were loaded as deck cargo on the Frauke by the ship's own cranes.
