TPS will deliver 26 RTGs to Pelabuhan Port, Malaysia – option for additional 32 cranes
Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order for 26 rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) to Malaysian terminal operator Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) for use in the Port of Pelabuhan.
The order, representing the largest RTG order in the company’s history, also includes the option to order an additional 32 cranes.
Each crane will be reconfigured as E-RTGs – powered externally by electricity supplied through a busbar system.
The new cranes will be an integral part of PTP’s expansion plans for its Pelabuhan terminal, which is already the largest container facility in Malaysia. They will be used on two new 720-metre quays scheduled to open in May next year.
“By expanding our terminal we aim to increase container-handling volumes by a further 25 percent,” said PTP CEO, Glen Hilton.
The new cranes are capable of stacking standard containers 1-over-5, servicing seven container rows, and have an under-spreader lifting capacity of 50 tonnes.
