The first mobile harbor crane in the Port of Longview's fleet, the Liebherr LHM500S, has arrived aboard the marine vessel Emilie K from Austria and was discharged in two shifts by SSA Marine and ILWU Local 21 laborers.

The crane will be used for handling wind energy cargo, which accounts for more than 20% of the Port's marine terminal business. The Liebherr crane is capable of lifting more than 100 metric tons, according to representatives of the Port.

The $4.6 million dollar crane was approved by the Port of Longview board of commissioners in December 2007, as a result of the increase in wind energy cargo coming to the Port.
