Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd has secured a contract with Freight Village Vorsino for the supply of two rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes.
The 600 Ha Freight Village Vorsino, was established in 2012 and is strategically located outside Moscow. As part of the Vorsino Industrial Park, the Freight Village boasts unrivalled access to road, rail and air infrastructure, and includes a high performance intermodal terminal. The two new Liebherr RMGs form part of the expansion plans for the intermodal terminal which will see the capacity rise to over 500,000 TEU per annum.
Declan O’Sullivan, area sales manager, Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd, commented, “We are delighted to work with Freight Village Vorsino to help deliver on their expansion plans. Liebherr’s Container Cranes Ltd. expertise and track record, coupled with Liebherr Russia’s extensive product knowledge and first-class local service capabilities combined to provide Fright Village with the optimum solution for their expansion plans. We look forward to delivering the cranes and seeing them in operation in due course.”
The cranes, which will be designed and manufactured by Liebherr Container Cranes Ltd. in Ireland, will ship in large preassembled components to St Petersburg, from where they will travel by road for assembly and commissioning in Freight Village.
