Booked in January 2021, the delivery will manage anticipated growth in container traffic at TICT for 2021 and beyond.
The cranes will operate in the Tincan area of the Port of Lagos, where they will handle containers alongside a fleet of six Model 4, two Model 6, and two other Model 7 Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes already on-site.
TICT is a subsidiary of Bolloré Transport & Logistics (Bolloré), the largest transport and logistics operator in Africa.
“These cranes will bring the size of the TICT Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Crane fleet to twelve, giving TICT the capacity to reduce vessel Port stay through improved operational efficiency,” said Andreas Czwalinna, Regional Sales Manager for Konecranes Port Solutions.
“This order illustrates the strength of our long-term partnership with Bolloré, working with them at their facilities around the world as they continue to grow.”
The cranes will be delivered in August 2021, allowing TICT to accommodate larger vessels.
“Liner requirements are constantly evolving, increasingly requiring higher performance cranes with flexibility in cargo handling and twin-lift container operation as larger ships call more frequently at our Port,” said Etienne Rocher, Managing Director of TICT.
“Our experience with Konecranes equipment has always been excellent. We are pleased to add two more of the Model 7 cranes to our facility.”
