Capacity boost continues at Cape Town
Cape Town container terminal's expansion project has seen several milestones in recent months, and the upward trajectory is set to continue for the next five years while the country's second-largest port continues its upgrade.
Oscar Borchards, Transnet Port Terminals' Business Unit executive says the company is also investing in "an aggressive training programme", since the equipment requires skilled operators.
"The terminal has to date trained 40 Operators of Lifting Equipment (OLEs), with 24 employees having completed theory, simulation and practical training on the ship-to-shore (STS) Liebherr cranes. This will ensure adequate operator resources to man the new cranes," he explained.
To assist further with training, the terminal will take delivery of a large MasterLift 4000 advanced training simulator this year.
Ongoing expansion work and equipment procurement will, said Mr Borchards, ensure the facility is better prepared when the global market picks up again in the near future.
