Terex Port Solutions, TPS, has received an order to supply two ship-to-shore cranes to Tanzania International Container Terminal Services, or TICTS.

The two new cranes will help TICTS enhance the productivity of its operations, and meet the challenge of constantly increasing handling rates that comes with being the major logistics gateway to Eastern, Central and Southern Africa.

Each crane will offer a lifting capacity of 41 tonnes under a twin-lift spreader and an outreach of 42 metres. Both are also designed to load and unload container vessels with up to 15 rows, and are not expected to generate any local exhaust emissions.

This order further strengthens Hong Kong-based HPH’s business relationship with TPS. Previously, the subsidiary of the multinational CK Hutchison has placed several orders for its terminals around the globe, including seven Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes for the Balboa terminal of HPH’s Panama Ports Company in 2012.

Managing director of TPS Xiamen, Maurizio Altieri, said: “In order to support the rapid development of its global business over the long term, HPH has now decided to rely on TPS again. Our cranes combine high productivity with economical total cost of ownership.”
