New Crane in Port of Tauranga almost Ready (New Zealand)

The latest addition to Port of Tauranga’s crane fleet, a Liebherr Super Post Panamax ship-to-shore twin-lift gantry crane, is now in its final stages of testing.

Liebherr Ship To Shore (Quayside) Crane

It is expected to be handed over for operations at Tauranga Container Terminal on Friday 28 March. This brings the total number of cranes at Tauranga Container Terminal to seven.

Six of these are Post Panamax, including three Super Post Panamax cranes capable of handling the largest ships anticipated to trade with New Zealand in the medium term.

The Super Post Panamax cranes have the ability to service vessels 18 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units) wide.

The addition of this new crane allows the Port to increase crane intensity on large ships to ensure high vessel productivity.
