If I remember correctly, none of the manufacturers (at least in "heavy metal" category) specify max crosswind limit.
Instead, they give you maximum demonstrated crosswind.
I think this is to allow landings with higher crosswind than officially presented without any penalties. It's actually quite possible (and safe) to land with crosswinds in excess of 50kts, considering other weather conditions (wind heading/strength, wind stability, clouds and visibility, etc.).
The 32L Intersrction departure was from T3.
