Pacorini Metals invested in a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane, type LHM 420, which started operation in summer 2014. The new LHM 420 has an outreach of 48 metres and provides a maximum lifting capacity of 84 tonnes. Tasks of the crane include container handling as well as bulk operation. A powerful crane set-up ensures high speed in terms of hoisting, slewing and luffing in order to achieve maximum turnover.

“The new LHM 420 plays a major role in our intra-port logistics chain. Due to the high performance of the crane we have vast capacity available to quickly load and unload all sorts of vessels. This remarkable investment also underlines our aim to provide best service to our customers,” says Mark Doene, Commercial Manager for Pacorini Metals Terminals B.V. (Pacorini). Pacorini offers a wide range of services all over the world, like warehousing, stevedoring, warranting, collateral management, cutting and packing, screening and crushing, forwarding and chartering and customs formalities.

Headquartered in Switzerland, Pacorini operates three facilities in the Netherlands where they are mainly specialized in handling and storage of Non-Ferrous metals, Ferro Alloys & Minor Metals. For their bulk terminal in Vlissingen, the company added a new LHM 420 to their cargo handling fleet. On the mouth of the river Western Scheldt, the facilities in Vlissingen provide excellent access to road, rail and inland waterways. Customers value the well-developed intermodal links in Vlissingen which built the base for becoming an important hub for international trade. Pacorini’s new LHM 420 is the first of its type in the Netherlands. It follows in the footsteps of its predecessor model, type LHM 400, which was delivered eight times to the most northern of the Benelux countries.

 In 2014, the LHM 420 is in high demand and was the second most successful LHM model with almost 30 deliveries worldwide. The LHM 420 already allows for highly efficient cargo handling in 25 countries on six continents across the globe. Customers around the world value its unique flexibility, its outstanding performance and the innovative features of the crane.
