Terex Port Solutions concluded business last year with a healthy influx in orders from terminal operators across the world, including an order for a Model 7 mobile harbour crane from Naples.
The German port solutions company received a high order intake for various harbour crane models in 2014, with orders coming from Chile, Haiti, UAE, Finland, Belgium and Indonesia. A stand out deal came from the Port of Naples from freight forwarder Roberto Bucci.
The introduction of the mobile harbour crane to the Italian port will improve efficiency and productivity as it will be able to load and unload container ships with up to five containers stacked on deck, with a boom pivot point of 23.2 m and a crane operator eye level of 29.3 m,.
The crane will begin commercial operation in the spring and will be part of an overall fleet of five Terex Gottwald mobile harbour cranes in the Flavio Gioia Terminal. The machine has a maximum radius of 54 m and lifting speed up to 100 m/min capable of loading and unloading container ships and handle a range of general cargo.
Rosario Tripicchio, general manager at Flavio Gioia Terminal said: “The G HMK 7608 will also help us to face the challenge of the rising demand for project cargo handling required from companies from Naples and beyond. The acquisition of the crane is thus an important strategic step for us and will sustainably strengthen our position in the Mediterranean Sea.”
