The Lugaport terminal in the port of Ust-Luga received the first cargo ship with a crane from Liebherr

The Lugaport universal trade terminal in the port of Ust-Luga near St. Petersburg received the first cargo ship: the dry cargo ship Rix Spirit delivered a German-made Liebherr LPS 420 crane to the Kingisepp district of the Leningrad region.
On January 31, the press service of the governor and government of the Leningrad Region reported on the successful transportation of equipment that is suitable for reloading bulk and general cargo. The weight of the arrived portal crane was 482 tons.
The car is planned to be assembled within a month. After commissioning, the crane with a maximum lifting capacity of 124 tons and with a boom length of 48 meters will be able to handle up to 38 containers per hour, and the lifting speed will be up to 120 m/min.
The delivery of the first gantry crane was carried out as part of the program for completing the terminal with equipment, the information and analytical agency PortNews writes with reference to the press service of the Novotrans Group of Companies.
As DP told earlier, FSUE Rosmorport and the Novotrans holding signed an agreement on the construction of the infrastructure of the Lugaport trading terminal in the fall of 2020. The document, in particular, provided for the creation of a water area by Rosmorport and the installation of navigational equipment.
The construction of the universal terminal is planned to be completed in 2024. Last spring, Rosseti Lenenergo provided the construction site with electricity. It is assumed that after commissioning, the total volume of transshipment of bulk, general, grain and food cargoes in the Lugaport universal terminal will be about 24.3 million tons per year.
In the summer of 2022, a representative of the Novotrans company said that the cost of the project increased by 1.5 times against the backdrop of the refusal of the Baltic ports to serve part of the Russian cargo. According to him, in early August, the total investment was estimated at 70 billion rubles, of which 30 billion rubles were the company’s own funds.
