Terex Port Solutions (TPS) continues to gain ground in the Italian market after receiving an order for its diesel-electric Terex Gottwald Model 7 mobile harbour crane in the G HMK 7608 variant at Porto di Carrara S.p.A. (Marina di Carrara), which was delivered in June, 2015.
This new crane is operating as part of an overall fleet of 11 Terex Gottwald mobile harbour cranes in Carrara.
The mobile harbour crane, with a maximum lifting capacity of 150 tonnes, will handle heavy and project cargo.
Dr Paolo Dello Iacono, Managing Director at Porto di Carrara, said: “Our port is a leader in importing and exporting stone, steel products and project cargo. The new crane helps us to extend our capacity in these segments.
“Currently we are linked to 85 ports on five continents. In order to face the challenge of gradually rising handling volumes, we continue to rely on productive and reliable mobile harbour crane technology from TPS.”
Gino Gherri, Regional Director Sales & Services at TPS, said: “The new machine is another milestone in our business relations with Carrara. Porto di Carrara has relied on technology from TPS for 30 years.”
