All four new cranes share the same technical specifications to handle vessels carrying up to 8,000 teus. Each crane has a maximum reach of 51 m over 18 containers, with a lifting capacity of 75 tonnes and maximum lift height of 36 m.
Following the 146 m extension of the container quayside early this year, investment in the third stage expansion and upgrade of the terminal will continue, with the infill of lagoons between the quayside and Pier’s hinterland, as well as reclamation of new areas at the western end of Pier I to provide an additional three hectares of container handling and storage area.
Today, Koper’s container terminal has 596 m of operative quayside with four Panamax and the four post-Panamax cranes. The total storage capacity amounts to 19,000 teus, including 300 reefer outlets. The total storage area of 17.2 ha will have an estimated potential throughput of around 600,000 teus per annum.
