Global Ports increases container handling fleet at FCT and PLP terminals

Global Ports unveils new equipment fleet

Global Ports Group (Global Ports) has increased its container handling equipment at the First Container Terminal and (FCT) Petrolesport (PLP) by purchasing 32 new terminal tractors and 40 semi-trailers.

The company said the new modern equipment will increase the efficiency and speed of cargo handling at both terminals’ container storage yards and berths.

FCT has received 15 Terberg YT193 tractors and 16 Seacom semi-trailers with a capacity of 60 tonnes. 17 Kalmar T2 tractors and 24 Seacom semi-trailers with a capacity of 40 and 60 tonnes have been purchased for PLP.

The vehicles will be used to handle 20, 40 and 45-foot containers, supporting the operations of rubber tyred gantry (RTG) and rubber mounted gantry (RMG) cranes, as well as ship-to-shore (STS) cranes.

Global Ports said, “Tractor cabins meet the European safety standards and the ROPS and FOPS technical requirements to protect the operator in the case of machine rollover and from falling objects.

The new equipment is easily maneuvered and performs well in both high and low temperatures and has already proven its performance during the heat in St. Petersburg in June.

“Global Ports continuously upgrades the fleet of its terminals’ equipment and purchases machinery from the world’s leading brands.

“This makes it possible to efficiently handle cargo flows and maintain a unified high standard of service throughout the operator’s terminal network.”

It is the latest innovation from the Russian-based terminal operator, which earlier in June 2021 unveiled tool for export containers for PLP to ease the flow of goods in Russia.
