Terex Port Solutions (TPS) has received an order for a new diesel-electric mobile harbour crane (MHC) for the inland seaport of Otake, southern Japan.
The new Model 2 MHC in the G HMK 2204 variant, which will mainly handle containers and general cargo, is expected to be delivered to the port in spring 2017.
The unit, which will be the first crane of Generation 5 from TPS in Japan, has a lifting capacity curve adapted to the Japanese requirements with a maximum lifting capacity of 62 tonnes, an outreach of up to 40 m and a maximum lifting speed of 85 m/min.
The crane also features a second, specially developed load display to meet the relevant requirements for the safe load indicator in the Japanese market.
The new machine is expected to contribute to a long-term increase in handling volumes at the port, which is located on the Seto inland sea.
Makoto Aso, president of Chikuho Seisakusho (CS), via which the crane was ordered, said: “Otake plays an important role in Japanese domestic trade and is also a hub between Asia and the Pacific area. This potential will be even better utilised with the new crane.”
