Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd., is excited to unveil a video highlighting the advanced automation capabilities of its new cabinless ship-to-shore container crane. This cutting- edge crane has recently entered service at Patrick Terminals - Brisbane AutoStrad in Australia, where it is already hard at work handling container vessels and automated landside operations. The crane features extensive automation and utilises Liebherr’s Remote Operator Station (ROS) for pick and place over the vessel and for exception handling. The ROS allows the same level of crane control as an on- board operator but from the comfort of an office-based environment.

This semi-automated crane is the first of its kind for Patrick Terminals, and one of the first cabinless Liebherr ship to shore container cranes to enter service globally, underscoring Liebherr's commitment to driving technological progress in the port equipment industry. Liebherr has previously delivered fully automated and cabinless rail-mounted gantry (RMG) cranes. In addition, Liebherr has many automated ship-to-shore (STS) and rubber-tired gantry (RTG) cranes on order, with several scheduled to be operational in the coming months, reinforcing Liebherr's position as a pioneer in providing safe and secure automated solutions.

We are thrilled to unveil the automation capabilities of our Liebherr ship-to-shore crane at Patrick Terminals - Brisbane AutoStrad," said Declan O’Sullivan, General Manager Sales at Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. "This achievement signifies our dedication to working hand in hand with our clients to push the boundaries of port automation and providing cutting-edge solutions that transform operations.

Through this video, we aim to showcase the power of automation in enhancing port efficiency, safety, and profitability.”

Michael Jovicic, CEO, Patrick Terminals said, “The introduction of the new semi-automated Liebherr ship-to-shore crane with a remote-control operator's station marks a significant milestone in the Patrick Terminals crane fleet. We are proud to have collaborated with Liebherr Container Cranes on this ground- breaking project, delivering a crane that aligns with our unwavering commitment to safety and efficiency. This innovative addition enhances our operations and underscores our dedication to embracing technology.”

Patrick Terminals - Brisbane Autostrad has two Liebherr ship to shore container cranes, the first unit was supplied in 2015 and has recently undergone a lift height and outreach extension using the innovative and patented Liebherr transform technology. The new crane features an outreach of 54 m, a backreach of 48 m, a lift height over rail of 40 m and a span of 25.3 m.
