Release date- 05102021 - Uruguayan company Corporacion Navios replaced a Liebherr long duty cycle crane with a permanently installed harbour crane type FCC 300. The recently erected harbour crane will be used for dry bulk handling of barges in hoppers at the terminal in Nueva Palmira, Uruguay. The now total of three harbour cranes is expected to increase the terminal's handling rates and generate operating synergies, as the crane operators will work with the same type of crane on all operations.

Corporacion Navios has been working with Liebherr cranes for 30 years. The Liebherr products are used to handle bulk cargo on the narrow pier. For terminals with little space but a high workload, the space-saving design of the Fixed Cargo Cranes series by Liebherr is the perfect solution.

They were supported by a Liebherr HS 871 HD long duty cycle crane, which is now being replaced by a FCC 300, the third of its kind at the terminal. With over 100,000 operating hours, the long duty cycle crane is a symbol for the successful and reliable cooperation between Corporacion Navios and Liebherr. In the course of this, the customer's renewed decision in favour of a Liebherr maritime crane is a sign of trust.

Outstanding experience values as the basis for the renewed purchase decision

Based on our positive experience with the two permanently installed cargo cranes, it was quickly clear to us that another crane of the same type was the right choice.'
