Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has strengthened its presence in the largest container terminal in Africa by supplying two rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMGs).
The two RMGs are now in operation at Durban Container Terminal, run by Transnet Port Terminals (TPT), a subsidiary of South Africa state-owned Transnet SOC Limited.
The new Terex RMGs are each equipped with a rotating trolley and have a span of 22.5m, a lifting height of 11m and a lifting capacity of 41 tonnes under spreader.
With the two new cranes, TPT is intending to increase both productivity and availability at the rail terminal.
CEO of TPT Karl Socikwa said: “The Terex RMG cranes will considerably boost our performance, creating a long-term competitive advantage for us and enable Durban Container Terminal to meet the demands of Transnet Freight Rail and all our valued customers.”
Socikwa continues: “This is one of the largest single orders that we have ever placed with a supplier with manufacturing facilities in South Africa.”
TPS offers a broad range of manual and automated stacking cranes.
Rail-mounted gantry cranes from TPS stand for ‘economic and eco-friendly’ solutions for dense stacking and handling of containers in port, rail and intermodal terminals.
