Terex Take Two in Tanzania
In order to enhance the productivity of its operations and increase lifting capacity, Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) has ordered two Terex (TPS) ship-to-shore cranes which are due to be commissioned by the end of 2016.
Situated in the capital Dar es Salaam, TICTS is Tanzania’s largest container terminal and a significant logistics gateway to Eastern, Central and Southern Africa.
The double-box boom structure STS will be manufactured at a TPS site in Xiamen, China. Supplied with power from a terminal’s electricity supply, the low noise cranes will not generate any local exhaust emissions.
Maurizio Altieri, Managing Director of TPS Xiamen said: “In order to support the rapid development of its global business over the long term, HPH has now decided to rely on TPS again. Our cranes combine high productivity with economical total cost of ownership.”
TPS recently supplied seven rubber-tyred gantry cranes to HPH’s Balboa Terminal in Panama.
