The LTR 1220 crawler crane represents a significant investment by Peel Ports and will deliver key benefits to operations in their Heavy Lift area of the docks. Located on the busy Port at Liverpool, the docks require equipment that can perform with precision in this highly intense application. Liebherr were able to provide this solution.
The core function of the crane will involve handling their customers’ heavy cargo and the wide variety of goods that arrive each day. The crane’s comprehensive functionality, that includes outstanding lifting and handling capability, will enable Peel Ports to process goods more quickly and continue providing its customers with a reliable and competitive service.
Phil Hall, Port Director, Port of Liverpool said: “With their extensive experience, the highly-specialised heavy lift team can turn their hand to any number of unusual lifting operations. The niche offering complements a comprehensive, first class service at the Port of Liverpool, which supports the recent addition of new services and further growth.”

“We have worked closely with the PPG team to understand their operational needs and involved a manufacturer to meet these requirements, the Liebherr was the solution that ticks every box. The crane has been customised with their PPG colour scheme and will become one of the Port’s eye catching landmarks, the machine was built and commissioned at site and immediately fits seamlessly into their operation.”
