Total Terminal International (TTI) Algeciras has finalised heightening operations for the first Malaccamax crane to come into service for the first week of October 2021.

The first Ship-to-Shore crane extension works began on 3 June.

The works consisted of increasing height from 43m to 52m, to able to operate up to twelve heights on deck – and in a 3m boom extension to reach beyond row 24 onboard vessels.

The conversion of these Super Post-Panamax cranes to Malaccamax will allow the semiautomated terminal to optimise the operations of the new giant containerships that operate on the transoceanic routes such as the M/V HMM Algeciras.

The expected delivery for the second heightened crane will be late December 2021.
