The cranes will help the port strengthen its position as Scandinavia's largest and most important container terminal, handling more than 50 per cent of Sweden's container import and exports.
Liebherr RMG cranes are the largest in Scandinavia. With a safe working load of 65 tonnes, an outreach of 65 metres, a backreach of 25 metres and a span of 30.48 metres.
They are designed with systems to increase safety and productivity. These include load collision prevention, ship profiling, straddle carrier positioning systems, electronically controlled safe zones and minimal acceleration times on all drives.
The rail mounted gantry cranes have been designed to have a safe working load of 50 tonnes under spreader, a span of 30.6 metres and an outreach on both sides of 14.5 metres.
Lift height over rail is 16.5 metres giving a stacking height of one over four. The cranes will handle multiple rail tracks under the span with container stacking and delivery to the horizontal transport vehicles taking place under the cantilevers.
Said Liebherr sales chief Gerry Bunyan: 'Liebherr Container Cranes and APM Terminals have worked together to deliver a number of different projects. We look forward to working with APM Terminals again in the future.'
Said APMT Gothenburg chief Henrik Kristensen: 'These Liebherr machines allows us to continue that journey and bring a faster and more reliable service to our customers.'
