ZPMC has announced it successfully delivered three ship-to-shore (STS) cranes to Hamburg – HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) as it continues to meet demand despite the pressures and limitations imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Chinese-state supplier of port equipment said in an online update that the delivery added to the 34 it had delivered to HHLA’s since 1999. Furthermore, it is the first batch of CTB’s order of 5 extra-long super-heavy ZPMC STS cranes.
The 2600t STS has an outreach of 71.6m and a back reach of 33m, and is customized with a low-noise design since the port is located near a residential area.
The company has fared relatively well since the outbreak of COVID-19 in late-2019 and has continued to deliver on contracts with ports and terminals across the world.
This includes the imminent delivery of the first batch of four units of dual-trolley Automated Quayside Container Gantry Cranes (QCs) for TUAS PSA Singapore, which left China on 25 September.
Additionally, ZPMC entered the Cambodian market for the first time in July 2020 with the delivery of four empty container reach stackers. In August 2020 it sent a fleet of four giant STS cranes to the Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia, the most technologically advanced port in Asia.
