Liebherr Container Cranes and DP World Berbera have signed a contract for the supply of eight RTGs for DP World's terminal in Berbera, Somaliland. The cranes are due to be ready for operation before the end of 2020.

The high performance, variable speed diesel RTGs are six containers plus a truck lane wide and will stack one over five containers high. The machines are supplied with DGPS autosteering and stack profiling. Like all Liebherr RTGs, the machines incorporate Liebherr's eight rope reeving no-sway-system. Gantry cameras as well as a laser anti-collision system bring safety enhancements to operations.

The Liebherr machines have been designed using high quality European components, specified for maximum loading conditions, significantly enhancing component life. Remote maintenance and Liebherr's diagnostics and maintenance software, DiaMon3D aims to further enhance the RTGs appeal and help deliver exceptionally low maintenance costs. The variable speed diesel engine, helps reduce running costs and will significantly reduce emissions.

The port already operates three Liebherr LHM 420 mobile harbor cranes, which went into service in early 2019. The new cranes are part of a phased expansion of the port, with phase one including a new 400 m quay and a 250,000 m² yard extension.
