Terex Gleams in the Philippines


Terex Port Solutions (TPS) is to supply six additional rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes to Manila North Harbor Port Inc. (MNHPI).

Manufactured by China, the cranes will be delivered at the end of 2014 to the largest port handling domestic cargo in the Philippines, where four Terex RTG cranes began operation in the summer of 2013.

MNHPI CEO Richard D. Barclay said: “We continue to invest in the modernisation of our infrastructure in order to develop and transform our facilities into a first-class port.”

Barclay continues: “The four RTG cranes have more than fulfilled our expectations, and so did the after-sales service provided. It was a logical decision to opt for TPS with a view to a further expansion of our capacities.”

Maurizio Altieri, General Manager of the TPS facility in Xiamen, said: “Generally speaking, we appreciate that more customers all over the world and especially in Asia continue to rely on our equipment designed and manufactured in our TPS Xiamen facility.”

The cranes for MNHPI have a lifting capacity of 40.6 tonnes under spreader. With a hoisting height of 18.1m, they can stack 1-over-5 standard containers and cover six rows of containers.
