July 23, 2018, a new assembled mobile harbour crane Liebherr LHM 420 was delivered by carrier AURA to the Multipurpose Terminal Yug-2 from Germany. The crane was manufactured at Liebherr factory in Rostock and it is the fifth crane in the arsenal of JSC "Commercial Sea Port of Ust-Luga". 

A tripartite contract for supply of Liebherr LHM420 mobile rubber-tyred crane was signed during the business program of TransRussia International Exhibition between Evgeny Savkin, the Director General of JSC "CSP of Ust-Luga", Hermann Ignatov, the Director of Sales of LIEBHERR RUSSLAND LLC, and Nikolay Ilyukhin, the Sales Representative of LH Financial Services LLC. The contract was signed with funding under leasing scheme (the lessor - LH Financial Services LLC).

Capacity of the mobile crane LHM 420 is 84 tons. It is designed to handle bulk, general and containerized cargo. Also, due to the maximum working radius of 48 m, it is ideal to perform loading and unloading of vessels of various classes.

LHM 420 is fitted with chassis of a special design, which enables the crane to perform complex movement: lateral movement, diagonal movement and axial rotation. The crane is equipped with a remote control system and low fuel consumption software. The equipment is adapted for operation at low temperatures.

"One of the main objectives of our company is to ensure the continuous development and improvement of the operational processes of the enterprise. Special attention is paid to retrofitting and upgrading of the terminal. The new crane meets all modern requirements for handling equipment and will significantly increase the efficiency of transshipment", - Evgeny Savkin, Director General of JSC "CSP of Ust-Luga" said. 

The new crane will be put into operation in early August after completing the required registration procedures and weekly personnel training at LIEBHERR factory in Germany.
