Dan O’Shea, Area Sales Manager for Europe with Liebherr Container Cranes commented. "We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with DSG and to provide them with the latest technology in container handling. Liebherr have worked with Doyle’s Shipping Group at Dublin Port since 1999 when they received the first of six Liebherr Harbour Mobile (LHM) cranes. Subsequent years saw the addition of five more LHMs and in 2007, they received the first three of their Liebherr RTGs, with the newest machine bringing to 12 the number of RTGs at the terminal. In addition, we have supplied a ship to shore container crane in 2015. DSG are thoroughly familiar with the benefits of Liebherr equipment, and we are proud to continue our long-standing partnership with this new hybrid RTG.”

Mr O’Shea continued "Commitment to sustainability is not just an option but is a responsibility for both Liebherr Container Cranes and Doyle Shipping Group. As two leading companies in the supply chain, we understand the vital importance of operating in a way that minimises our environmental impact, while maximising social and economic benefits. Liebherr's Gold Medal in sustainability from EcoVadis is a clear demonstration of our unwavering dedication to transparency and certainty in sustainable supply chains. For our customers, choosing sustainable equipment is a vital first step towards a sustainable economy, where every stage of the supply chain works in harmony to deliver truly sustainable products to consumers. Our commitment to sustainability is not just a choice, but an obligation that we embrace with pride."

The LES 200 is a state-of-the-art capacitor system that effectively captures and preserves the energy produced during hoist lowering and braking, which would otherwise go to waste. The captured energy is redeployed during peak demand to reduce the overall energy consumption and emissions of the RTG. The system not only benefits the environment but also ensures cost savings by reducing running and maintenance expenses.

The solution is available on both new machines and as a retrofittable solution via Liebherr Transform.
