Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC), a Global Ports Group company, has received two new ZPMC rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMG) as part of efforts to increase capacity and productivity.

Due to be put into operation in August 2021, the equipment will increase the overall capacity of the yard to 27,000 TEU.

The new cranes will be installed in the areas of the berths No. 5-6, where the modernisation of two container storage yards with a total area of 23,000 sqm has been being completed.

The installation of the new equipment, with a stacking height of 6+1, will double the capacity of the yards from 2,500 TEU to 5,000 TEU.

The RMG cranes were delivered to VSC from China on a specialised cargo vessel, Dongbang Giant No. 3.

The gantries will be unloaded and transferred to the operating area by the end of June 2021 and once the gantries are on their permanent tracks, ZPMC engineers will start the set-up work, due to be completed by the end of August 2021.

The technical work required to set up the new RMGs will not interfere with VSC’s day-to-day operations.

VSC has been operating two similar RMG cranes since January 2021. The equipment has been used at the storage yard in the area of berth 5, where the renovation was completed in 2020.

Ilia Dolgiy, Аcting Managing Director of VSC, noted, “The reconstruction of storage yards, creation of universal infrastructure and handling equipment upgrade will increase the capacity and productivity of the terminal, bringing benefits to our customers and allowing us to handle an increased cargo traffic in the Far East of Russia.”
