An LHM 550, soon to be delivered to Whyalla.

Qube Logistics, the Australian logistics supplier with services and facilities in 28 ports across the country, have ordered a LHM 550 for their Whyalla operation with SIMEC. This will be the ninth harbour crane for Qube from Liebherr within the last five years, joining the LHM 420 which was recently delivered to Bell Bay in Tasmania.

The new crane will come with a SMAG 4-rope grab and SmartGrip® bulk handling option, allowing materials with a variety of densities to be handled with the same grab. Todd Emmert, Director of Qube in Western Australia, commented on Qube’s commitment to assisting SIMEC in the development of the Whyalla Port, and how Liebherr has helped this happen; “Liebherr has worked very hard to shorten our delivery to suit our client’s needs.”

We look forward to the delivery of the LHM 550 at Whyalla.
