First Liebherr LRS 545 Reachstacker for India

First Liebherr LRS 545 Reachstacker for India

Rostock (Germany), May 2017 – Bothra Shipping Services Pvt Ltd. has taken
delivery of a new Liebherr LRS 545 Reachstacker for its Kakinada Port container
operation. Furthermore, Bothra is awaiting delivery of a new Liebherr training
simulator.

Liebherr has delivered a new LRS 545 Reachstacker to Bothra Shipping Services Pvt
Ltd. at Kakinada Port. The new Reachstacker is being used at Bothra Shipping Group’s
busy port for container operation predominantly for the stacking of containers inside the
terminal. Bothra Group opted for a Liebherr Reachstacker because of the smooth
handling features and the high total economic value of the machine.

Low total cost of ownership

The LRS 545 is designed for highly responsive operation to allow high performance in
a relaxed manner. The innovative individual drive concept ensures that, a hydraulic
motor independently drives each wheel. Not only is this a more compact solution, it
reduces tyre scrubbing and thereby increases tyre life. The reduced wear and tear of
the tires strongly contributes to low total cost of ownership. By removing the
mechanical gearbox element, the drive of the machine from acceleration to braking is
smooth and step less, which provides added sensitivity at low speeds and increases
driver comfort.

Another significant factor for good total cost of ownership of a Reachstacker is of
course fuel consumption. The highly efficient hydrostatic drive system of the LRS 545
makes a reduction in engine size possible. Fitted with a 4-cylinder 230 kW engine that
meets Tier 4f requirements, fuel consumption as low as 12 to 14 litres per hour can be
achieved.

New training simulator for ship and port cranes

Bothra Shipping Group operates eleven Liebherr mobile harbour cranes in total – from
LHM 400 over LHM 425 to seven LHM 550. The cranes are used for bulk operation as
Bothra handles a huge volume of coal. Therefore, some cranes are also equipped with
Liebherrs self-learning system SmartGrip that increases material handling performance
and protects the crane from being overloaded.

The India Shipping Group also awaits delivery of one multipurpose ship crane type
CBW, which will be installed on a barge for open sea operation. Another fixed cargo
crane type FCC 300 was already installed on a fixed foundation pedestal directly on
quayside.

In order to further increase their crane operator skills Bothra Shipping Group recently
installed a new training classroom equipped with a Liebherr LiSIM simulator. The
simulator offers the original Liebherr crane controls and is equipped with simulations
software for both crane types, mobile harbour cranes and ship cranes.
