Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. is pleased to announce the conclusion of a major upgrade project at Port Liberty (formerly Global Container Terminals) in New York. We have increased the lift height and extended the boom tip on three of the four Liebherr ship to shore container cranes (STS) at the port, with work on the fourth crane being completed in the coming weeks. Liebherr’s cameras were on hand to record the process and the dramatic footage is now available on Liebherr Maritime’s social media channels.

Liebherr’s team of expert engineers increased the lift height of the STS cranes by 8.6 m and extended the outreach by 5 m. This substantial enhancement enables the cranes to efficiently handle larger vessels and allows Port Liberty to offer an improved service to their customers.

Thanks to Liebherr’s innovative jacking system, the entire lift height extension can be completed in several weeks. The patented system, uses the crane’s end carriage as a stable base for jacking, eliminating the need for additional equipment. The process is exceptionally quick and efficient, ensuring minimal disruption to terminal operations.

Liebherr Transform is the dedicated upgrade and modification service designed to make cranes stronger, faster, smarter, greener, and ultimately better. By employing cutting-edge technology, Liebherr Transform helps ports and terminals around the world boost productivity, reduce equipment downtime, and achieve faster turnarounds.
