The Cork Container Terminal has taken delivery of two new Liebherr cranes and they are now being assembled local crane erection specialists William O’Brien Group, under the supervision of expert Liebherr engineers.
With the help of the new cranes the Port of Cork is expected to see a 37% increase in containers handled at the port of the next decade to 330,000 teu compared to 240,000 teu last year.
Henry Kingston, port engineering manager of the Port of Cork, said, “Liebherr Container Cranes in Killarney have been working with the Port of Cork for more than 50 years, and their port cranes, ship-to-shore container cranes, and rubber tyre gantry cranes (RTG) have been integral to making us the most seamless trade gateway in Ireland.”
