The Contship Italia Group has announced that two new 23 row ship to shore (STS) cranes have successfully been delivered from China to the La Spezia Container Terminal (LSCT).
The investment in LSCT comes as part of a substantial programme to improve infrastructure to operate the increasing number of ULCC ship calls deployed by customers. After a 60-day-long journey from China to La Spezia, the specialised cargo ship TERN berthed at LSCT safely, along with it the two brand new cranes.
LSCT also completed the latest stage in positioning its newly revamped gantry crane on to the berth for final commissioning, the move took just a few hours and didn’t impact on ship operations. The crane will undergo final testing and commissioning set to conclude at the end of the month.
