Turkish delight for Terex with 24 RTGs on order

  • Asyaport turns to Terex to handle expansion of container facilities

Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order from Asyaport, a joint venture led by Terminal Investment Limited SA. (TIL), for 24 Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs).

The cranes, designed as E-RTG variants, are in the process of being designed and manufactured at the TPS facility in Xiamen, PR China.

The fleet of cranes is due to be delivered in batches at the end of 2014 and in early 2015 to Asyaport located on the Sea of Marmara, about 150 kilometres west of Istanbul. TIL, in cooperation with local investor the Soyuer Group, operates the port, which will be expanded to become one of the largest container terminals in Turkey.

“This order means Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes are celebrating a ‘first’ in Turkey,” enthused Maurizio Altieri, General Manager of TPS Xiamen.

“The current order is not only another success story in one of the key growth markets in maritime trade, it confirms our strong foothold in the container-handling gantry crane segment, following another prestigious project acquired in April 2013, for the delivery of 26 E-RTGs to PTP Malaysia,” continued Altieri.

The Terex RTGs ordered can handle 40 tonnes, have a hoisting height of 21 metres under spreader and can stack standard containers one-over-six.
