Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has continued to broaden the scope of its business relations with Porto di Carrara, Italy, after supplying the port with a Terex Liftace 5-31 reach stacker and two Genie Z-45J RT diesel articulating boom lifts.
This follows a purchase in early 2015 for a diesel-electric Terex Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 7608 variant.
The Liftace reach stacker handles project cargo, including outbound heavy industrial machinery. The boom lifts help Porto di Carrara to further accelerate a variety of maintenance tasks.
Dr Paolo Dello Iacono, Managing Director at Porto di Carrara, said: “Since the purchase of the first mobile harbour crane in 1985, we have gradually developed our business relations with TPS.
“As the productivity and reliability of machines from TPS have always impressed us, we have now opted for other technology from Terex. Our handling volumes are constantly rising, and we are sure that the new reach stacker and boom lifts are the appropriate choice to face this challenge.”
Giuseppe Di Lisa, Vice President of Sales and Services in Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Russia at TPS, said: “With the three new machines, our collaboration with Porto di Carrara has reached a new level. Porto di Carrara’s choice of boom lifts from Genie proves the complementary nature of TPS products and confirms the role of TPS as a provider of system solutions.”
Antonello Cozzolino, Regional Sales Manager in Italy and North Africa at Genie, said: “Our machines are designed for a multitude of environments and conditions, and we are pleased that two of them are now operating in one of Italy’s leading ports.
“This shows the huge potential of both our products and Terex Corporation in markets around the world and the possibility of expanding further into the maritime industry with the assistance of our team members from TPS.”
