Philippines-based cargo and passenger terminal operator Manila North Harbour Port has ordered an additional six Terex rubber-tyred gantry cranes.
Manufactured at Terex Port Solutions’ facility in Xiamen, China, the 40.6 tonne gantry cranes have a lift height of 18.1 metres, a one over five configuration and can stack up to six containers wide plus a truck lane. The terminal operator previously took delivery of four units last year.
Manila North Harbour Port chief executive Richard Barclay, said: “We continue to invest in the modernisation of our infrastructure in order to develop and transform our facilities into a first-class port. The four RTG cranes have more than fulfilled our expectations, and so did the after-sales service provided. It was a logical decision to opt for TPS with a view to a further expansion of our capacities.”
