One of the largest harbour cranes in the northern Baltic Sea To Blomberg Stevedoring, Vaasa Vaskiluoto harbour

Oy Blomberg Stevedoring Ab has acquired a heavy Liebherr LHM 600 harbour crane for the Port of Vaskiluoto in Vaasa. The manufacturer of the machine is Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock GmbH from Germany, and it has arrived at the end of December 2022.

The newly built crane has a lifting capacity of 208 tonnes, making it one of the largest harbour cranes in Finland and at the same time in the northern Baltic Sea. The value of the acquisition is approximately EUR 7 million.  After delivery, Blomberg Stevedoring has three heavy Liebherr harbour cranes in Vaasa. With the acquisition of this crane, the capacity of the lifting operations performed in the Port of Vaasa will be doubled. As a tandem lift with Blomberg’s second crane, loads of up to almost 300 tons can be lifted.

Blomberg Stevedoring handles significant amounts of different types of project goods in the Port of Vaasa. The crane will serve especially the heavy industry and other export and import customers who need demanding port handlings, such as importers of wind power components.
