The first two machines of the new-generation Terex lift truck family have been the focus for Terex Port Solutions (TPS) at TOC Europe 2015. On booth B20, visitors have the opportunity to gain insights into the current innovation activities of TPS around the globe.
New virtual reality technology will showcase the Terex Liftace 5-31 reach stacker and the Terex Stackace E 6-8 empty container handler.
Klaus Peter Hoffmann, Vice President and Managing Director at TPS, said: “Both the Liftace reach stacker and the Stackace empty container handler are cost-effective, serviceable and ergonomic machines.
“The new trucks offer low fuel consumption and wear in addition to particularly easy access to maintenance points to facilitate servicing. They are also designed to be especially ergonomic with a user-friendly cab. The two aces combine the expertise and strengths of the two Terex legacy brands, PPM and Fantuzzi, with many innovative features.”
Hoffmann continued: “The EPA Tier 4 final (EU Stage IV) compliant machines will contribute to a significant reduction in fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. Moreover, the use of a fleet of battery-driven Terex Gottwald automated guided vehicles (battery AGVs) helped Long Beach Container Terminal (LBCT) to win the prestigious California Air Quality Award in May.”
He concluded: “Around the globe, the importance of automation is rising. As the manufacturer with the most comprehensive port-related portfolio, TPS also provides clients access to holistic solutions including consulting, planning and management software.”
