. . . and operators add equipment

Industry Database

The main container terminals at the port of Santos intend to increase their productivity this year through the purchase of new cranes financed through tax breaks made available by the government.

First, a $1.2m feasibility study and a $1.5m environmental impact study must be completed before a tender can be issued.

Tecondi is to receive two new post-Panamax cranes from Liebherr, which should boost capacity by 25%, allowing the terminal to achieve 42 moves hourly on berthed vessels. Last year, the terminal reported a throughput of 215,000TEU, but expects to boost this by 18% in the current year.

Libra Terminais is also planning to boost berth productivity from 45 moves per hour to 50 moves per hour through the deployment of its five new ZPMC post-Panamax gantry cranes and six RTGs.
