The new equipment will be used for the loading and unloading of general cargo, break bulk and oil and gas equipment, enhancing the efficiency, productivity and safety of port operations and reducing vessel turnaround time. In addition to making loading and unloading faster and easier, the operator compartment of these new machines has been ergonomically designed to provide good sight lines, better working comfort and environmentally friendly with low emissions and noise levels.

The recent acquisitions underline DP World Limassol’s commitment to continually investing in the port delivering innovative and sustainable services, while at the same time continue to improve customer satisfaction.

DP World Limassol general manager Charles Meaby, commented “The addition of the new equipment is an integral part of our commitment to provide high quality trade enabling services in Cyprus.”

With its heavy lifting capability, innovative services the new crane will help maximise the Multipurpose port’s potential. DP World is a global leader in the management and operations of ports and we will continue making improvements to deliver a better service for port users.”

“The new cranes will enable DP World Limassol to work more universally and with a higher turnover at all berths of the terminal. The SOLAS compliant weighing system installed in both units will benefit both the operation and maintenance of the units. We will put all efforts into fulfilling the expectation DP World has towards Liebherr and are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with DP World in the future”, quotes Igor Nedelchenko, Area Sales Manager for Liebherr Mobile Harbour Cranes.
