Townsville Opts for a Liebherr LHM 420

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Australian-based Northern Stevedoring Services (NSS) placed an order for a Liebherr mobile harbor crane, type LHM 420, to operate on Berth 3 and 4 in the Port of Townsville, Queensland. The operations of the stevedoring company span all of regional Queensland’s major port facilities, providing the full range of stevedoring and logistics solutions. The new crane is the third LHM crane for NSS, which has been operating an LHM 550 and an LHM 1300.


The crane comes with double supporting pads and software to assist in meeting the quay limitations, along with Liebherr’s Cycoptronic anti-sway system and a twinlift spreader. The LHM 420 is also fitted to operate with the Rotabox system for dust-free high-value mineral handling.
